West African Jade is a Nephrite Jade. It gets its bright green color from traces of chromium.

Yellow Jade is the industry name for this natural serpentine. This stone features an array of shades from deep oranges to creamy off white tones.

This is a matte version of our new Red Creek Jasper beads, still as beautiful as the original. Muted yellows and sage greens bring this stone right in line with today’s fashions. It’ll also be the perfect stone for an article of timeless heirloom jewelry. We have lots of shapes to choose from, just scroll down!

Deep blue with white and orange streaks and flecks. Similar to Lapis Lazuli, but without the gold flecks of pyrite.
