Jasper is the opaque variety of the mineral chalcedony, which is the microcrystalline version of quartz. Jasper has been used for thousands of years by various cultures to make stone tools because of its conchoidal (shell like) fracture. Brecciated jasper occurs when the original jasper is broken up and then more jasper, often of a different color, re-cements the original material creating a coherent whole. 

Jasper has been used by various cultures as a stone of protection, it holds an aspect of solar energy and a connection to the solar plexus chakra. It is said to protect against negativity and helps one to be grounded in the stabilizing energies of the earth. It balances the yin-yang energy and balances the physical, mental, and emotional bodies with the etheric energy.

Each piece is similar, though no item at Crystal Joys is exactly the same as every item uses a unique stone that is non-fabricated.  Every item at Crystal Joys is truly "one of a kind". Slight variations in color, size and bead shape exist.
