Jasper is a variety of Chalcedony which is a microcrystalline variety of Quartz that comes in a variety of colors and can found around the world. What makes Jasper so interesting is the amazing range not only of the colors but the patterns that can be found, often depicting a scene found in nature, sometimes even similar to the environment where it is discovered... a desert landscape, a mist over a small pond, poppy fields, a green forest, a stormy sky.. scenes that spark our imagination. Many are named for the regions where they are mined; others are named by those who discovered them. Though far too extensive to cover here, we will mention a few that we incorporate into our designs and will try to update this as we introduce new varieties.
