Ajooba Jasper Pendant
This hand crafted ladies pendant features a distinctive brown coloured jasper that's best known as Ajooba Jasper. The characteristic that stands out the most in this particular stone is the almost perfectly shaped love heart that can be seen just left of centre.
The colours and markings in all varieties of jasper are the result of impurities and/or inclusions of other substances/minerals and it's because of these, that jasper tends to be opaque. It's also the reason why jasper is classified as a rock and not a mineral. and it's estimated that as much as 70% of the stone is made up of other minerals/substances.
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 fascinating heart in this Ajooba Jasper gemstone may well be a token of love from Mother Nature. It has been crafted as a ladies pendant in a fine sterling silver setting.
