Amethyst jasper, or Jaspagate, is the name sometimes given material that is considered either intermediate between jasper and agate or consisting of bands of transparent chalcedony and subtranslucent jasper. It is actually metamorphic limestone and is very easy to cut. It polishes and shapes beautifully into jewelry. This particular stone is an elongated teardrop with pinks, lavenders and a milky white over clear chalcedony. I've border-wrapped it in sterling silver with two swirls at the top.

Treat someone special to this one-of-a-kind gift or buy it for yourself.

The pendant measures 3 1/2" from top of bail and is 1 5/8" wide.

Note: Jasper was a favorite gem in ancient times and is referenced in Hebrew, Assyrian and Latin literature. It is a massive, fine-grained chalcedony and comes in all colors. The name jasper comes from the Greek and means "spotted stone." Jasper is believed to protect against sight defects and drought. It is both stabilizing and healing.

Enjoy this unique piece of hand-crafted jewelry.
