This is a cabochon necklace of sandy brown jasper. The jasper is set into a filigree cameo base that is silver plate and measures approximately 3.5cm in length. The chain is a silver plate snake chain that is 18" or 46cm in length and fastens with a lobster claw clasp. The pendant will arrive to you boxed.
Jasper was a favourite gem in ancient times and is referenced in Greek, Hebrew, Assyrian and Latin literature.
Jasper contains organic material and mineral oxides which give it interesting patterns, bands and colours. Many of these patterns resemble landscapes with mountains and valleys, thus the name "picture" is part of the name of many well-known jaspers.
Jasper is one of the birth stones listed for the Sun Sign of Virgo. It is also the Mystical birthstone for the month of October. Legend says that Jasper would drive away evil spirits and protect against snake and spider bites. In the fourth century, it was thought to bring about the rain.
