Rainforest Jasper as a Gemstone
Rainforest Jasper is a rhyolite (volcanic rock) with a green-brown background mottled with other colors such as yellow, brown, and peach. Calling it jasper is misleading, because jaspers are sedimentary rocks, not igneous (volcanic), and rainforest jasper seems to be named jasper purely due to visual similarities with other jaspers. Compositionally, it is more similar to granite than chalcedony. In the jewelry industry, you will see the same rock referred to as “rainforest jasper” and “rainforest rhyolite”.
