Polychrome Jasper (also called Desert Jasper) is a delightful new find from Madagascar! It was discovered by geologists in 2006 while searching for the currently mined out Ocean Jasper. It was named for its multi colors.
Jasper is a microcrystalline variety of chalcedony. Chalcedony is a durable gem surface even harder then standard Quartz.
