Jasper Stones are widely used in jewellery making as they are so varied. Jasper is an opaque stone and can come in many colours. Jasper beads are usually heavily patterned due to the consolidation process in the original sediment. As jasper beads are so varied they are sometimes named after the place they are found, or their appearance. It is regularly dyed and stabilized, Imperial Jasper is a great example of this. Brecciated Jasper stone is called this because it is formed from healed fragmented rock.
Our Semi Precious Stones are genuine and natural unless they are stated to be synthetic in the description. However, you will find the vast majority of Semi Precious Stones are treated in some way, as they would not be stable enough for use in jewellery in their original state.
