Cool Grey Coloured Poppy Jasper
Grey and white coloured gemstones are rarely associated with jewellery and finding nice cabochons suitable to use in our collection is always a challenge. Although poppy jasper is widely used as a gemstone stones are best known for being brightly coloured but occasionally it can also be virtually colourless. These stones tend to be relatively easy to identify because colour and markings vary minimally from one piece to the next.
Poppy jasper which is a type of orbicular jasper features the minerals quartz and feldspar, it takes on a high polish and carefully chosen cabochons can make elegant and eye-catching pieces of jewellery.
When choosing this piece for our collection we noticed it wasn't perfectly symmetrical but loved the stone and having been mounted in sterling silver it's really not that noticeable. We have however decided to offer this ladies pendant at a slightly reduced price because of this minor anomaly.
