More Information:

Jasper is a form of Chalcedony, made up of 90% quartz and 10% morganite. It is composed of microscopically fine fibrous crystals, and it normally shows color banding, stripes, whirls, bull's eye and other random patterns due to impurities in the quartz. Jasper is used as a gemstone and can be highly polished when used in ornamental work. Picture Jasper is created when wind or water forces the banding patterns to change. Dendritic growth can also enhance the patterns of Picture Jasper.
