Leopardskin Jasper Pendant
Leopardskin jasper pendant crafted by hand in a timeless sterling silver setting. The name of this distinctive variety of jasper clearly came about because someone believed it to be similar to the coat of the big cat by the same name. It is however a type of orbicular jasper and Leopardskin is simply a trade name.
This colourful material is used almost exclusively for lapidary purposes and in particular for cabochons. It takes on a high polish and colours tend to become more vibrant as it catches the light. Jasper is an opaque stone that can be found in many places around the world but Leopardskin comes predominantly from Mexico.
This leopardskin jasper pendant has been crafted by hand by one of a small team of skilled artisans with whom we have been working for almost twenty years.
