Let's take a deeper look at this stone to find out why it's such a beautiful crystal to have in your home.
How is it formed?
Red Jasper has a strong red complexion, that is from the elevated levels of iron within the stone. It's technically a form of quartz, called chalcedony, however it doesn't form in the typical crystal form that you'd expect quartz to. The most common ways that red jasper forms is when fine particulate materials are cemented by silica, or when volcanic ash is cemented into a solid material.
