About Red Jasper:
Jasper is derived from the Greek for “spotted stone”, and is a form of microcrystalline quartz. The finely grained, dense jasper contains up to twenty percent foreign materials that determine its color, streak, and appearance. Jasper was cherished for its beauty and mystical properties since ancient times, and is mentioned in the Bible, used on the Great Wall of Jerusalem, and was treasured throughout ancient Greece. Jasper is found in Australia, Brazil, Canada, Egypt, India, Kazakhstan, Madagascar, Russia, Uruguay and the United States.

Beautiful beads. Perfect for wrathful guru (of Guru Padmasambhava) practices due to its darker red color. Added bonus is that it is strung with bead wire making it longer lasting before breaking.
