 Jasper, Autumn Gemstone Properties 


Design Possibilities

"Ah!" It's not surprising that the word "autumn" begins with "ah!" Whether it's your favorite season or not, autumn calls for relaxing and winding down. The mixture of warm brick reds and avocado greens in autumn jasper beads add that feeling wherever you use them-in wrist and ankle bracelets, dangle earrings, or mixed in multiple strands with other autumn colors. "Ah!"-that's what you'll hear, too, from people who see them and stop in front of your jewelry display.

Metaphysical/Healing Properties

Jasper, like agate, is a powerful healing stone. It helps us move beyond just surviving to making us glad to be alive. Imagine pumpkins, red maple leaves, a long leisurely walk through the country. Kick back. Relax. The heat of summer is over and the evenings are just cool enough to light a fire in the woodstove or fireplace. Life is good. Somehow you'd forgotten. That's what autumn jasper reminds us of whenever we wear it.
