ZEBRA JASPER 925 STERLING SILVER JEWELLERY
Zebra Jasper, like other jaspers, can be found around the globe and has been utilized since ancient times. In contrast to most jasper, which is spotted, this jasper marble is patterned. Jasper is an opaque chalcedony that comes in a wide range of colors and patterns. The unevenly heated brick red and avocado green color of zebra jasper distinguish it from other jasper varieties. The word "jasper" originated from the Greek word iaspi, which means "spotted stone." Jasper has always been a popular gemstone, being used by old Kingdom priests and carved into seals by the Minoans. While jasper is now more freely available, it was historically regarded as a valuable gemstone.
