What Is Picture Jasper Made Of?
Jasper is a silicate mineral belonging to the Chalcedony crystals group, a subset of the large Quartz family of crystals.
Chalcedony gems are microcrystalline in nature, meaning they differ from other Quartz varieties in that the crystals inside them are invisible to the human eye.
These types of Quartz get their vibrant colours from impurities within the crystal matrix.
Picture Jasper Patterns
This colourful crystal is named Picture Jasper on account of its likeness to a landscape picture, painting, or photograph.
Picture Jasper tends to describe a form of Brown Jasper, (the range of brown tones in Picture Jasper is caused by high iron content), which displays patterns similar to landscapes in the form of black dendritic markings or colourful veins created during the silification process of the Jasper.
Where Does Picture Jasper Come From?
There are famous deposits of Picture Jasper in Oregon, USA, but Picture Jasper can also be found in countries such as Africa and Brazil.
