Watermelon Jade is a type of dyed natural marble that carries a beautiful color variation of vibrant pink/red paired with a deep green. Marble is a metamorphic rock that is made up of recrystallized carbonate minerals, typically Calcite or Dolomite. Marble can be foliated (repetitively layered metamorphic rock), and in Geology Marble refers to metamorphised limestone.
These Watermelon Jade beads are 8mm rounds which makes them ideal for Mala designs; not to mention their positively spirited coloring! That color range goes from red to magenta into some natural looking pale to dark greens which would add a fun touch to any design.
Historically marble has been the most common medium for ancient Greek and Roman sculptures and architecture, which means that much of the most beloved sculptures today would not exist without this fascinating metamorphic rock.
