Red Creek Jasper is one of my favorite Jaspers. It is such a warm blend of brown, red and green colors. I have paired these large, star cut, faceted Jasper beads with globes of bright orange Carnelian with golden pyrite and brass beads and toggle, a perfect mix of colors for the season.
If you would like a pair of matching earrings to complement this bracelet, please email me and I would be glad to make a pair for you. The earrings will be an additional cost.
Carnelian is a translucent Chalcedony with color ranging from light orange to reddish brown. The red color is due to the presence of Iron Oxide. It is commonly found in Brazil, India, Siberia and Germany. Carnelian has been used in jewelry since the Neolithic times. It is associated with the heart and emotional warmth, considered by some to promote courage, confidence and self-motivation. It is the alternate birthstone for July. In Arabic and Oriental cultures, it was thought to protect the wearer from the 'evil eye' of envious persons.
Jaspers have been used as ornamental and gemstones from ancient times. They are microcrystalline Quartz in association with a variety of other minerals which give the Jaspers colorful patterns and bands. Jaspers are often named according to its color or patterns.
Red Creek Jasper, is named after the stream that runs through the area it was first discovered in China. It is also known as ‘Cherry Creek’ Jasper. This stone is known for the swirling combinations of earthy browns, green, yellow and reds that give each bead a unique color pattern.
