Red Jasper rough material

A nice bright red is a color that nature doesn't like to produce very much of. When I am at gem shows I am continually keeping my eyes open for red materials, because I frequently get calls for red materials.

Jasper is a form of Chalcedony. See our Chalcedony page for a description of what Chalcedony is.

Below you will see a variety of examples of red Jasper materials which we have in stock.
