Caption: Jasper surface. Patterns on cut and polished surfaces of two pieces of jasper. Jasper is a type of silica (silicon dioxide). It is often stained by impurities such as the iron oxides (red) here. The patterns make this mineral highly prized as an ornamental stone. This sample is from Roy Hill in Western Australia.
