Dalmatian Jasper Pendant
Dalmatian jasper gemstone pendant crafted by hand for Stone Mania in a fine sterling silver setting. A relatively easy material to identify because of its distinctive spots, dalmatian jasper despite its name does not meet all the requirements on a geological level to be a true jasper hence dalmatian stone instead of jasper would be a more accurate name.
Named after the breed of dog made famous by the Disney film 101 dalmatians, dalmatian jasper can be found in a few places around the world but Mexico is one of the largest exporters and ironically, it's mined primarily in the state of Chihuahua. So this spotted stone that was named after a dog comes from a state in Mexico after which a dog was named. Sometimes fact really can be stranger than fiction.
This polished gemstone makes an eye-catching ladies pendant and is one of the very few dalmatian jasper pendants that we currently have in our collection.
