I love the rich colors of this picture jasper pendant. The markings are stunning. It is set with a simple sterling silver bail.
Picture jasper comes in various shades of brown, tan, black, blue and/or ivory. Beautiful backgrounds of tans or grey have gorgeous patterns on them. It almost looks like someone has taken a paintbrush and painted on them. But these stones are naturally formed like this, just enhanced with a bit of polishing. It is said that the pictures display a hidden message and/or picture from the past. Each piece is very unique and exciting. Picture jasper is stone for inner journeying and dream work. It has a deep connection to mother earth and can be a portal where one can connect to sacred places and civilizations during meditation.
Jasper is a cryptocrystalline variety of quartz, which means the individual crystals are too small to be seen except by powerful magnification. Jasper has a wide variety of colors and patterns depending on the trace elements trapped within the structure. The energy tends to be broad and softer than crystal forms of quartz. Jasper is a great nurturer, it gently draws out negativity and helps energize you. It connects you with the Earth and helps you enjoy life to the full.
Crystals are our passion. As such, we treat each crystal as an individual spirit, which is why we insist on individual listings for all of our crystal offerings. We care deeply for the crystals, ensuring that we nurture them while they are entrusted to our guardianship.
