This beautiful 1-decade Fancy Jasper rosary is part of our Bee Faithful series. Jasper is an opaque chalcedony that comes in a wide variety of colors. Fancy jasper is known for its color palette of mauves, lilacs, creams and greens all mixed together. The term "jasper" itself comes from the Greek word iaspi, meaning "spotted stone." Jasper is a gemstone that has been used all over the world. The ancient priests of Egypt carved jasper into beautiful jewelry while the Minoans used jasper for seals. While jasper is widely available today, the gemstone was once treasured as a valuable stone. Jasper gemstones are found all over the world, but fancy jasper has large deposits in Africa and Brazil. Since Fancy Jasper is a natural stone, each rosary is unique and colors may vary.
Our rosaries are handcrafted using the finest and strongest beading wire to ensure that your rosary will be an heirloom for many years to come. Remove jasper jewelry before playing sports or any other activity leading to perspiration. Clean jasper jewelry with a soft dry cloth to preserve polish. Clean quickly if the jewelry becomes soiled, as jaspers can be porous and easily stained. Wash with warm, soapy water and a soft cloth or soft brush. Dry thoroughly. Avoid prolonged exposure to extreme heat, as prolonged heat is used to change color in quartzes. When storing jasper, wrap in a cloth or a fabric bag so it cannot scratch softer materials or be scratched by metals or harder gemstones.
