I just got some more in, and again i could not get a lot, but what I did get is quite nice and more colorful then I thought it would be.
IMPORTANT NOTE....While these beads are still very pretty all that I have left have a lot of white, gray and brown shades and some, but less color. The only known Ocean jasper mine in the world is mined out and now closed. The rough that is being cut now is what is left from what had been previously mined and is what is left. As they mined the lower levels the rough became less colorful. Whether or not more of these beads will available and how colorful they will be I don't know. My stock is getting quite low. Once the rough that has already been mined is gone there will be no more new product. I have been hearing this for about a year now and every bit of info I have been able to gather leads me to believe that this is true.
Folk Lore says:
Ocean jasper is the stone of high spirits and joy. It opens one's awareness to the benevolent aspects of life and lifts one's mood through its positive vibrations. It helps one to overcome feelings of sorrow, fear and worry and comforts and calms.It encourages the love of oneself and of others. It is a stone that aids with emotions and brings a sense of peace which helps us connect to nature and the earth.
Note: Beads may appear bigger in the pictures than they actually are..
Note: I try my best to show and describe color accurately however I can not guarantee it since color shows differently on different monitors. Beads strands are all unique as they are a natural product designed by Mother Nature. Colors show brighter in the pictures they are actually more earthy and subdued.
