    About the material 

    Poppy Jasper is a type of brecciated jasper, (meaning it probably came from sun-dried and oxidized iron-rich clay) characterized by its orbicular patterns of brilliant red “poppies” amid speckled shades of white, yellow, brown, and black.

    Poppy Jasper is formed when the Jasper fractures, and crystals of hematite or quartz, or both, are created in the resulting spaces.

    Although called a jasper, the stone is actually a mixture of different forms of quartz: clear and colored varieties of chalcedony, banded agate, and pockets of tiny quartz crystals called druzy.

    Poppy Jasper comes from Morgan Hill mine in California.
