History | Science

Jasper is a form of chalcedony known for its bright colors and opaqueness, both caused by the amount of "impurities," minerals mixed within the silica/quartz.
Although Jasper is a long-known stone, especially revered in the ancient world, Polychrome Jasper, also called Desert Jasper, is a rare form of jasper only discovered in 2008 in Madagascar. It is still only mined there in just a few remote locations. When the stones, with their ribbon-like inclusions of red, blue, green, pink, purple, and tan, are cut and polished, it produces the swirling, circular, almost eye-like shapes that Polychrome Jasper is known for.

Metaphysical Properties

Polychrome jasper is an excellent stone for those in transition- AND for those who really need to be! It reduces fear around change, encouraging an exuberance for life that will not let you settle for less than your greatest good.



Although we always strive to provide clear, accurate images of our crystals and other products, we photograph under professional lighting, which is meant to mimic sunlight. If you get your crystal and think it looks a little different under low or artificial light, try checking it out again in sunlight!

Our crystals are one-of-a-kind art, created by nature.

No two pieces are the same, and there is no such thing as "perfection" in nature.

When it comes to our hand-carved items, remember that artists work with and around imperfections, druzy pockets, and other natural variations to bring each carving out of a piece of natural stone.

We consider these imperfections to be one of the most wonderful parts of crystal collecting, and we invite you to embrace each carving's uniqueness!

We will always try to portray each piece honestly, so be sure to look closely at our images and videos to ensure you know what to expect.
