More about Porcelain Jasper

Like the porcelain it's named for, Porcelain Jasper is a result of extremely high temperatures. Indeed, if you'd been around some billions of years ago, you'd recognize this lovely, delicate rock as lowly clay. That's what a few eons of powerfully high temperatures will do. Don't try this at home! But do try these gorgeous Porcelain Jasper beads.

Porcelain Jasper beads boast colors found in few other stones, particularly in this combination. Think of pinks, plums and mauves, veined with a darker grey. The results are sumptuous and stylish. These beads would be especially complemented by silver, whether in necklaces, bangles or bracelets. Share these exquisite beads with your customers and they'll demand more.

Jasper, for all it commonness, is actually a wonder.
