A  breathtaking jasper pendant hangs from this gorgeous necklace of matching square and round jasper beads. All spacer beads and findings are sterling silver and the beads are strung with strong jeweler’s wire using the finest craftsmanship.

Jasper appears several times in the bible, notably in the passage on the Heavenly City in the Book of Revelation. However, it is also listed as one of the nine stones in the priestly Breastplate of Aaron in the book of Exodus.

     "Call all the skilled workers to whom I have given ability, and tell them to make Aaron's clothes, so that he may be dedicated as a priest in my service.
Tell them to make a breastpiece, an ephod, a robe, an embroidered shirt, a turban, and a sash. They are to make these priestly garments for your brother Aaron and his sons, so that they can serve me as priests.
You shall make a breastpiece of judgment, in skilled work. It is to be made of the same materials as the ephod and with similar embroidery.
It is to be square and folded double, 9 inches long and 9 inches wide.
Mount four rows of precious stones on it; in the first row mount a ruby, a topaz, and a garnet; in the second row, an emerald, a sapphire, and a diamond; in the third row, a turquoise, an agate, and an amethyst;
and in the fourth row, a beryl, a carnelian, and a jasper…”
