Ash Jasper gemstone beads feature lovely grey-black patterns embedded in a creamy white or grey colored base. The striking look is the result of volcanic ash that appears layered or speckled within the matrix. Jasper is a mix of quartz and chalcedony, and the name jasper is derived from the Old French word, jaspre, meaning ‘speckled or spotted stone.’
With its neutral color scheme and inclusion of ash that results in interesting inlaid patterns, Ash Jasper is a lovely and unique bead to have in your collection or to feature in your designs or project.
As a nurturing gemstone, Jasper’s can evoke feelings of calm, tranquility, peace and provide a sense of well-being.
