Jasper

Product Information

Jasper is an opaque form of chalcedony that is found in many colours and interesting patterns due to its many impurities.

Jasper can be banded, spotted and mottled, making it a desirable stone for many amateur cutters as it is generally inexpensive and is usually cut into cabochons and beads. In ancient civilizations Jasper was considered an important stone being used for personal adornment and carving personal seals.

It is found in many locations around the world including Australia, USA, India, Brazil, Russia and Egypt.
