Jasper, Picasso Gemstone Properties
Like a Picasso painting, this unique jasper with its wide streaks of black, grey and occasional red has an abstract, modernistic look. Found in Utah, Picasso jasper is as mesmerizing as a painting that demands your attention. Part of its fascination is the tension: the boldness of black, the passive quietness of grey, the exciting energy of red all swept together. String these beads in multiple strands with other black or grey-toned beads for a look that's formal and distinctive. Personally, I think Picasso jasper calls for a red dress to wear it with, a combination that is refined and simultaneously sizzling. It's a look guaranteed to get other people's attention.
Celebrate life. Put on your high heels and that long sleek dress (or kick them both off) and dance a little. That's what this gemstone calls for. It says wake up. It reminds us that it isn't only later than we think, it's also earlier. We still have time to "live a little". That's Picasso jasper's message. We enjoy life more when we don't ignore it.
