Where Is Jasper Mined From?

Several regions from around the world are sources of Jasper – the USA, Uruguay, Venezuela, Brazil, Australia, Madagascar, Egypt, Indonesia, Kazakhstan, Russia and India.

Certain varieties of this stone are indigenous to particular localities. Examples would be India which produces most Bloodstone, and Australia which is the only source of Mookaite.

 

More Jasper Facts

  • The name Jasper itself describes one of the main distinguishing features of this mineral, which is the unique color patterns. It comes from the old French word Jaspre which means “spotted or flecked stone”.
  • Natural Jasper is believed to be reddish, yellow or brown in color. It is the impurities present in the rock that bring in other colors. The diffusion of these impurities penetrate fractures in the natural minerals and create spectacular color patterns that make each Jasper gemstone exclusive.
  • The numerous varieties of Jasper gemstones have interesting and thought-provoking names. Some refer to geographical settings (Ocean Jasper, Rainforest Jasper).
  • Others have whimsical names (Rainbow Jasper) or names that describe the stone itself (Dalmation Jasper, Picture Jasper)
  • Jasper was a much-favored stone in ancient civilizations, especially in Arabia, Persia, and Greece, as it was believed to be a stone of protection.
