Did you know there is over 2000 different types of Jasper?! Gary Jasper (AKA Garry Green Jasper, Swamp Bog Jasper, Larsonite, etc.) is one of our favorite types of jasper! It is a sedimentary rock that some believe contains fossilized swamp, wood, and algae. These were then covered by volcanic ash, and fossilized over time into these amazing colors! This process ages the stone to be around 11-14 million years old! Gary Jasper is said to bring joy into ones life and is a helpful stone for spreading joy to others as well. P.S we also have Gary Jasper jewelry!
