Dragon Blood Jasper
The unique color patterns of Jasper make it a wonderful stone to create rosaries from as each rosary will be different from the next. Dragon Blood Jasper is also known as Dragonstone or Dragon Jasper. This olive-green stone presents a mixture of red coloring throughout each bead. In its natural form, this Jaspar stone has a rough, grainy texture but once polished into a bead, it has a glassy luster.
Dragon Blood Jasper is a variety of the Quartz family, most commonly mined in Western Australia as well as South Africa, and is comprised of green Epidote and red Piemonite. Some ancient stories suggest that Dragon Blood Jasper is formed from the remains of ancient dragons, with the green being dragonskin and the red, their blood.
