This is a finely hand carved large realistic Chameleon Dragon Lizard Reptile figurine, carved from a piece of Serpentine Jasper stone weigh 2.94kg. The craftsman cleverly chose Serpentine Jasper to carve the Chameleon Dragon because the colour of the stone resembles the real Chameleon Dragon's colour and it has beautiful contour spots patterns. The craftsman finely carved the scales of the Chameleon Dragon, making it look very real and beautiful. The sharp teeth of the Chameleon Dragon was made from real clam shell and tongue is carved from red jasper. Everything is natural, realistic carved, beautiful to display.
The name Jasper is derived from a Greek word meaning "spotted stone." Jasper is a microcrystalline variety of Quartz, a silicon dioxide mineral with a hardness of 6.5 to 7. Its crystal system is hexagonal. Within Jasper, the quartz microcrystals are laid out in sugar-like grains, rather than the fibrous layers found in its close relative, Chalcedony. Jaspers are found all over the world, including important deposits in India, Russia, Brazil, France, Germany and the USA.
