Leopardskin Jasper Pendant
Leopardskin Jasper Ladies Pendant
Distinctive leopardskin jasper gemstone pendant crafted for Stone Mania in a fine sterling silver setting. Leopardskin is a trade name for a particular variety of orbicular jasper that comes primarily from the state of Chihuahua in northwestern Mexico.
Jasper is a cryptocrystalline variety of quartz which means its crystals are too small to be seen with the naked eye. Jaspers feature traces of many different minerals and substances which is why it's almost always opaque.
As with all of the gemstones in our collection, this highly polished leopardskin jasper cabochon was carefully chosen by a member of our team prior to it being transformed into a piece of jewellery. It comes complete with its own colourful gift pouch that will help to protect the stone and minimise the build-up of tarnish on the sterling silver.
