Jasper

Jasper is another form of chalcedony quartz and in ancient cultures it was believed to have healing qualities in cases of poison bites. It is usually all the various earth-tones; red, brown, yellow- and also green and gray. The red-green variety is the most common and the most popular. This gem is opaque and can either be multi-colored, with strip-patterns or spot-patterns running across it, or solidly colored in a very fine grain. It is easily recognized because of the startling contrast between its primary color and the blotchy pattern. There are very rare black and blue jasper gems.
