Silver leaf jasper beads provide subtle, sophisticated colors and patterns with dominant shades of cream, tan, gray, and black that, when combined, can give a silvery appearance. Bits of brown and occasionally red can also be present.
The patterns on these semiprecious beads tend to be in lines and bands, which makes this gemstone somewhat unique in the jasper family. Sometimes these markings look like the delicate veins found on leaves, thus the name.
Silver leaf jasper gemstones are believed to provide protection and good luck.
