Whitby Jet and Blue Jasper
Jasper is a form of quartz with a crystalline structure and coloured by iron oxides. It has been discovered in many locations on earth and worn throughout history, treasured in particular by the American Indians, who wore it for protection. Blue jasper is traditionally associated with harmony, protection and courage. This blue jasper stone has a wonderful variety of colour and opacity; it actually contains many shades of blue, turquoise and green and is transparent in some areas so the inside of the stone can be seen.
