Red Creek Jasper

Red Creek Jasper

Legend - Also known as Chinese Picasso Stone or New Picasso Jasper. This is a fairly new material from a deposit found in northwestern China 3-4 years ago. It is named, not for it's colour, but from the stream that runs through the mining area. The colours are all natural but it is not a true Jasper - mineralogical testing has not yet determined the chemical makeup of this stone, but it is softer than true jaspers and some say its a type of marble.

Description - These Red Creek Jasper beads come in a variety of interesting patterns in shades of rusty red, ochre, taupe and gray. Sold as temporary strung 40cm (approx) strands.
