Ajooba Jasper Pendant
Relatively Unknown Ajooba Jasper
Ladies Ajooba Jasper gemstone crafted as a pendant in a simple sterling silver setting. This distinctive cabochon has reddish brown colour and distinctive mustard coloured markings. Opaque and with a smooth texture, it's well polished and surprisingly light weight.
Jasper is a type of rock that can be found in many localities around the world. It contains a high percentage of impurities and/or inclusions of other minerals and substances which is why it cannot accurately be described as a mineral in its own right. The presence of the inclusions and substances is the reason why jasper is almost always opaque and why it occurs in so many different colours and with such a wide variety of markings.
Although this type of jasper is best known as Ajooba Jasper, that is a trade name that was created by manufacturers in Jaipur in India where most of the world's cabochons are cut and polished.
