  1. I was going to guess jade (figuring that I was wrong), but then saw it tagged as jasper in the tag section. LOL.

    I’m going to get better at stone identification from your blog!

    • Hi Kai – LOL! Yep, I went back and forth about whether or not to add that tag, but I figured I’d leave it in in case someone was searching for jasper down the road. So, yes, it is a jasper – Artistic Jasper, also known as Paintbrush Jasper. Each bead is different with a unique pattern of black spots and lines stippled onto a gray or tan background – as if they were painted with a paintbrush!
