WHAT IS BLUE SPOT JASPER? Like all Jasper, Blue Spot Jasper is a type of chalcedony, which is a cryptocrystalline form of silica that is composed of moganite and the very fine intergrowths of quartz. The patterns vary according to where the jasper comes from as each unique one is formed from a consolidation of natural elements in the original silica rich sediment or volcanic ash. There is an infusion of minerals, vegetative growth, weathering and time that all play their role in the various types of jasper we see. Some varieties of jasper have banding, others look like pictures, others are spotted. Jasper is an exciting addition to any rock collector as there are so many varieties, each with its unique character.
