The Diversity of Jasper

Jasper has been said to be the favorite gemstone of the ancient world. Jasper meaning, "spotted stone", has a history in every major culture around the world. Jasper is a form of silica and usually comes in a brown, red, or yellowish hue.

Since there are so many forms of Jasper the names for it vary greatly, usually named to try to describe the coloring and patters formed within the stone. Some of the most popular names include, Australian Jasper, Poppy Japer, Egyptian Jasper, Green Jasper, Leopard Jasper, Opal Jasper, and Russian Jasper to name a few. Another type or name that is probably the most desired when it comes to jewelry is the Picture Jaspers, often referred to as looking like a scenic painting or landscape due to the multiple layers and banding that occurs as its created.

We've recently launched some great new Jasper Pendant necklaces and are eager to keep working with it as it is such a great stone and has so many possibilities, here are a few of our designers picks that use Jasper as the primary or secondary stone for the piece.
