Jasper is a semi-precious stone encountered in many different colors. It consists of two minerals, Jade and Jadeite. Jasper has been known since ancient times and is an integral part of Asian art . It is an opaque variety of chalcedony, typically encountered in shades of mottled yellow-red-brown due to various iron oxides. It often exhibits bands or spots. Its name is derived from the Greek word “Iaspis”, which is mentioned in works of Theophrastus and the Bible. What makes this mineral interesting are its streaks and layers, which sometimes form impressive psychedelic patterns. These patterns have been grouped and assigned various poetic names.
