Also known as multi-agate, colonial jasper strands combine a mix of agates and jaspers in warm earth tones, such as brick red, grey and honey. The colors range from transparent to opaque, sometimes within the same bead. The durable material takes a nice polish, giving the beads a smooth surface with a good luster.
