What is River Jasper?
First things first, let's get acquainted with River Jasper, the star of this cozy show.
Origin and Looks: River Jasper stones get their name from those smooth, rounded stones you'd find in riverbeds. It's a type of Jasper, which is known for its various colors and patterns and tends to show off earthy tones like brown, beige, gray, red, and sometimes a hint of green.
River Jasper is mined in several regions worldwide including India, Brazil, Madagascar and Australia, but one of the most famous sources is the Pacific Northwest of the United States.
The Oregon landscape, with its rugged beauty, is home to some of the most exquisite River Jasper specimens. These stones are known for their vibrant reds and intricate patterns, making them highly sought after by jewelry connoisseurs and we were lucky enough to source the stones for our new statement earrings from this region.
Ancient civilizations were no strangers to this gemstone's allure. It was often used for amulets, talismans, and ceremonial items because it was believed to have protective and grounding qualities.
