    About Jasper:

    Jasper, a type of "chalcedony" quartz similar to agate, comes in a wide variety of patterns and colors from around the world.  Notable jasper varieties include red jasper, picture jasper, bloodstone, and leopard jasper.  While jasper and agate both are atomically the same, jasper is differentiated by being a completely opaque stone, whereas agate is translucent.  Agate and jasper can form together or in combination with one another.

    Both hard and durable, jasper ranks 6.5 to 7 on the Mohs scale of hardness.  Due to the microcrystalline nature of how chalcedony is formed, stones are resistant to chipping and breaking.  Jasper jewelry can safely be cleaned with chemical jewelry cleaners and ultrasonic cleaners.
