This listing is for one 16 inches Strand of 13x18mm Dalmatian beads in Pillow shape. Each strand of beads is similar to the photo, but is unique due to natural variations.
This jasper stone is named for the dog breed dalmatian, whose spotted coat it resembles. In fact, the term "dalmatiner" is the German word for dalmatian (though "dalmatian" itself is of Greek origin). This brown-and-black-speckled gemstone is believed to increase patience (we're guessing because owning one of the dogs requires a lot of it!). The gemstone is also said to lessen or remove disillusionment and protect against nightmares, depression and negative thinking.
