Picture Jasper is formed from mud that dripped into gas pockets in molten lava. The resulting pattern of extraordinary banding or veining resembles a picture or landscape, hence its name. While brown picture jasper might be the most common, Picture Jasper also forms naturally in remarkable colors and color combinations due to a high iron content and the level of the earth’s natural minerals and impurities that may be present in the stones. The colors are often dependent on where the stones have formed. For example, Miriam’s Private Gemstone Collection includes Australian Picture Jasper, found as striking multicolor stones of red, teal, green and brown, and Owyhee Oregon Picture Jasper with softer shades of teal, brown and terracotta. Picture Jasper truly is a Stone of the Earth—and each stone is remarkable.
