Jasper is an ornamental rock composed mostly of chalcedony in association with other minerals, which give it colorful bands and patterns. Jasper was a favorite gem in the ancient world, and the name jasper can be traced back in Hebrew, Assyrian, Persian, Greek, and Latin. Imperial Jasper is found about 50 miles northwest of Guadalajara, Mexico on the east side of a steep canyon. It is known for coming in many colors, but each piece is usually limited to just one or two colors.
