Add daring color to your jewelry designs with this round shaped natural Red Jasper. This bead features deep, brick Red Jasper which is similar to pipestone - a soft red stone mined in Minnesota for centuries by the Plains Indians for the carving and making of pipes. Red Jasper is luscious with unakite, turquoise or bone. This gemstone is considered as the stone of empowerment, bringing strength to resist emotional domination by others, and the courage to overcome domestic violence. It also sustains those in the process of healing and recovering from violent experiences. This 4mm bead is center-drilled.
