Named for its color resemblance to the saguaro cactus, this "jasper" is a type of serpentine with opaque green shades. The beads are machine cut for a consistent size and shape with a smooth finish. The soft nature of serpentine makes it a good choice for use in short necklace and earring designs that are protected from heavy wear.
