These bracelets are made with genuine Indonesian picture jasper beads. They are 7-8 inches around and are stretchable. So they can adapt to a wide variety of wrist sizes.
Picture jasper is called such because the random formations on this stone resemble various sepia-toned mountainous landscapes and hilly views. The stone is a very popular material with artisans who use it to carve and construct vases, jewelry, and containers with a southwestern look.
Picture jasper is said to be a stone of creative visualization, memory recollection, history, hindsight, and stability. It is connected to the root chakra and the third eye chakra. The root chakra helps us to overcome and work through obstacles, strengthen our identities through lessons learned and feel connected to and grounded with earth. The third eye chakra aids us in reaching enlightenment, higher consciousness, developing insight and evoking mental images with deep personal significance and meaning.
Natural beiges, browns, creams and woody colors of picture jasper remind many of earth, mountains, sand and soil, all symbols of foundation, constancy and sustenance, which inspire us to appreciate and establish strong roots in our lives and harmoniously adapt with time.
