Ajooba Jasper Pendant
Ajooba Jasper Pendant | Gift of Love
Hand crafted ladies pendant featuring a fascinating brown and mustard-yellow coloured gemstone known as Ajooba Jasper. The most prominent characteristic in this polished cabochon is the almost perfectly shaped heart that can be seen just left of centre.
The colours and markings present in jasper are the result of impurities and/or inclusions which cause the stone to be mostly opaque. As much as 70% of jasper is believed to be made up of other minerals and substances therefore many argue that it cannot be accurately described as a mineral in its own right and should be classified as a rock.
A fine grained variety of cryptocrystalline quartz, jasper is known to have been used as a lapidary material for thousands of years and today hundreds of different varieties are in circulation.
The natural heart shaped inclusion in this Ajooba Jasper gemstone could be a token of love from Mother Nature. This ladies pendant has been crafted entirely by hand in a setting of fine sterling silver.
