Jasper as a Gemstone

About the Stone

Jasper is a member of the quartz family, specifically an opaque aggregate of microgranular quartz with various inclusions. It sits at a 6.5 – 7 on the Mohs scale. Its name comes from Greek “jaspis”, meaning “spotted stone”.

Jasper is found in many colors and patterns, resulting in many names for different varieties. Jasper types are usually named for their pattern. Colors of jasper include grayish blue, green, off-white, white, yellow, orange, red, pink, black, and brown. Jasper very rarely has a uniform color, as it often has other materials mixed in with it. There are over 50 varieties of jasper, often with a blotch like, or vein like pattern.

Jasper is one of the oldest known gemstones, and was very popular in ancient times. It has been written about in Greek, Hebrew, Assyrian, Persian and Latin prints, as well as the Bible.

Jasper is found in many locations including Canada, USA, Africa, Australia, China, France, Germany, India, Italy, Russia, Sicily, and Venezuela.

    Hi, just recently purchased (by accident) what they said is India Jasper but I’m not seeing it on the list, could there be another name for it? I am a very new beginner so I appreciate your time and patience. Thank you

      The list is not meant to be definitive. There are hundreds of stones that are labelled as some kind of jasper, and sometimes the names overlap or some names are used some places and others are used other places. It’s confusing, I know!
