Seller: paropamiso.gioielli (849) 100%, Location: Venezia, Ships to: Americas, Europe, Asia, AU, Item: 121593201403 Jasper is a form of chalcedony and was a very sought after material in antiquity. The material is opaque and the colour is usually red, yellow, brown or green. The rarest colour is blue. Green jasper is known to have been used to make bow drills in Mehrgarh (present day Pakistan) between 4th-5th millennium BCE. The cornerless cube was a popular shape in the ancient middle and far East, and belongs to the "YANTRA" Beads (Yantra is a sanscrit word that means geometric forms) . It most probably originated from India, where the geometrical triangles and squares are used in the ancient tantric tradition. The geometrical shape of these beads is in the ancient Indian tantric tradition believed to invoke magical qualities. This bead has an important size, a wonderful patina, and presents signs of wearing and weathering without any chip or nick. It belongs to the kind of "cornerless cube", and we suppose it dates back to the Song Dynasties (Northern and Southern) from 960CE to 1279CE. See James W.
