Jasper is a fine grained quartz with a host of foreign matter. It is formed in the sedimentary manner when the original silicic acid solution penetrates clayey or sandy rock or is itself permeated with a multitude of suspended particles. When the silicic acid solidifies into quartz; the clayey, sandy, or finely distributed particles remain and enclose within the jasper as it forms and give it its opaque colour and unique markings.
Jasper is a mineral that can occur almost anywhere and appears in a wide variety of forms. The different markings found on these varied representatives of jasper have led to them being traded under a plethora of imaginative names.
