Chinese Turquoise Pendant with Lapis beads
Red Jasper is an opaque variety of Quartz that is found the world over. The name “Jasper” comes from the Greek word IASPIS. The stone in this pendant has a matte surface as opposed to a brightly polished finish. I like the way the black and white play across the top. Simple yet elegant.
Jasper has been used throughout history for both ornamentation and as a gemstone.
