Introduction To Jasper
Jasper is a kind of quartz. Its color is caused by the different magazines it contains. Hematite makes jasper red, limonite makes it brown or yellow, and chlorite makes it green.
Jasper has a long history of use, and has been used to make amulets and decorations many centuries ago. Its modern name is believed to be derived from the ancient Assyrian word ashpu, which means stone. The advantage of jasper is not only because it often presents the red that we admire in our lives, but also has endless tones and patterns, and the output is large and easy to engrave, which makes jasper a very valuable commodity.
