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.
