This is a stiking example of Sea Sediment Jasper. It's pink and teal in color, double-sided (well-finished on both sides).
** DUE TO AN ACCESSORY SWITCH, THIS ONE NOW COMES WITH A FULL 18k GOLD, 1MM CHAIN. PRICE HAS CHANGED ACCORDINGLY. ** Revised photos to come soon.
Usually mined in Hubei China Sea Sediment Jasper is also known as African Opal, Aqua Terra Jasper, and Impression Jasper. It's good for those interested in collecting the many forms of agate, jasper, or sometimes other minerals. Jasper is a form of chalcedony quartz, and is opaque rather than clear or translucent like regular quartz or agate. It contains an abundance of impurities which give its interesting appearance.
This stone is indeed sea sediment jasper, but it has been dyed in order to obtain the unusual coloration. These come in many variations and are indeed striking.
There are over 3,000 types of agates and jaspers, and this is a nice representative of one of them.
