The name jasper means "spotted or speckled stone", and is derived via Old French. Jasper is an opaque rock of virtually any color stemming from the mineral content of the original sediments or ash. Patterns arise during the consolidation process forming flow and depositional patterns in the original silica rich sediment or volcanic ash. Like chalcedony, Jasper is found in nearly any color of the rainbow. It often contains organic material, which gives it unique patterns, bands, and colors. Many say that these patterns resemble landscapes with mountains and valleys. It is said that Jasper provides grounding and protection against negativity.
