MARIUM / COQUINA JASPER GEMSTONE JEWELLERY
Designer cabochon of red and orange bowed triangle-shaped semi-precious gemstone Coquina Jasper measuring 37 mm by 33 mm and 5 mm thick. Elephant Jasper, Elephant Skin Jasper, Cobra Stone, Calligraphy Stone, and Script Stone are various names for this fascinating semi-precious gemstone material from India. However, Coquina Jasper is our favorite because it is more accurate. The Spanish name for cockleshells or shellfish is "coquina." Coquina Jasper is a solidified sedimentary rock made primarily of the mineral calcite, but with fragments of seashells or coral thrown in for good measure. Coquina Jasper occurs at the shore when the waves are strong and tiny shells and coral fragments are thrown up.
