 Today, I would like to share with you some fascinating information about a gemstone that is often misunderstood - Rainforest Jasper (pictured above- was your name close?).

Despite its name, Rainforest Jasper is not a Jasper at all. In fact, it is a type of Rhyolite that originates from Australia, a country with no tropical rainforests. The stone's name is derived from its unique green and brown patterns, which resemble the lush foliage of a rainforest.

Rainforest Jasper is a highly sought-after gemstone due to its mesmerizing patterns and unique coloration.

It is believed to contain healing properties that can help promote grounding, stability, and balance. Many people use Rainforest Jasper to connect with nature and to enhance their spiritual practices.

The stone is also known for its durability and versatility. It can be used in a variety of jewelry-making techniques, such as wire wrapping, beading, and silversmithing. Its rich colors and intricate patterns make it a popular choice for statement pieces and one-of-a-kind creations.

Despite its many benefits, Rainforest Jasper is often confused with other stones, such as green Jasper or Serpentine. It’s easy in general for stones to get mixed up which is why I source stone beads from reputable gemstone dealers to ensure their authenticity. 

Rainforest Jasper’s unique patterns inspired me to make some one-of-a-kind pieces in my collection out of it. I kept the designs simple because the stones themselves are so unique and vary greatly in colors.

I can't wait to see what creative names you came up with!

I hope you enjoyed learning about Rainforest Jasper. If you have any questions or comments, please do not hesitate to reach out.
