An opaque stone with a matte finish, jasper is a variety of chalcedony that can appear in a number of colours, though it is most often red, brown or purple. We frequently work with a few types of beach asper known as Banded or Dalmatian jasper due to its spotted / striped appearance. A unique presentation of the stone, our jasper is collected from the creek on our family land and thus carries extra significance for us as carvers.
A healing stone, jasper is considered a powerful protection aid and one that confers grounding, stability and strength upon its wearer.
