Imperial Jasper Pendant
Imperial Jasper Ladies Pendant
Rich chestnut brown coloured Imperial Jasper cabochon, highly polished and mounted as a ladies pendant in a fine sterling silver setting. All of the gemstone pendants in our collection have been hand-made by one of a small team of talented artisans with whom we have been working for many years.
Imperial Jasper is a popular lapidary material that can only be found in one location in Mexico. Also known as Royal Imperial Jasper, stones takes on an exceptional polish and tend to be cut as cabochons. Although often referred to as a mineral jasper is correctly classified as a rock because although made up primarily of quartz and/or chalcedony, it also features traces of many other minerals and substances.
This surprisingly light weight Imperial Jasper pendant is not particularly chunky and comes complete with a colourful gift pouch. Keeping gemstone pendants covered whilst not being worn helps minimise any build up of tarnish on the sterling silver whilst also protecting the gemstone from unwanted marks and scratches.
