Sold By Strand
Polychrome Jasper, also known as desert jasper, is a stone found in Madagascar. The stone gets its name from the Greek words "poly," meaning many, and "chroma," meaning color, because it displays a wide range of colors, including red, orange, yellow, green, and brown. These colors come from a combination of iron oxides, clay, and organic matter that become trapped in the stone during formation.
Polychrome jasper beads with a matte finish have a unique and understated beauty that is both soothing and captivating. The matte finish gives the beads a soft and velvety texture, which adds to their tactile appeal, while also allowing the stone's natural patterns and colors to shine through without distraction. Whether used in jewelry-making or simply admired as decorative objects, polychrome jasper beads with a matte finish are a testament to the subtle beauty and wonder of the natural world.
