Jasper is an opaque variety of Quartz, and comes in a huge variety of different patterns and colours, from simple Red and Yellow Jasper, to patterned Jaspers like Picasso and Picture Jasper, to fancy Jaspers such as Kambaba, Mookaite and Ocean Jasper that can only be found in small, select locations. Jaspers are sometimes mixed with different minerals, such as Unakite, which is red jasper mixed with Epidote. Jasper was a favourite in the ancient world, with many ancient civilisations using it for jewellery, seals and carvings.
