The term jasper derives from the Greek word for, “spotted stone.” Scientist put jasper in a group all by itself due to its grainy structure but it is usually considered to be chalcedony. It contains foreign materials that make up its streak, color and appearance and account for 20% of the stone itself. The rarest type of jasper is uniform.

Jasper is essentially the gemstone of vivacity, security, and physical energy. It is good to keep in your home, work, or car for extra protection.
