Jasper is an opaque, impure variety of silica, usually red, yellow, brown or green in color. The name means "spotted or speckled stone", and is derived via Greek iaspis, from a Semitic language.
Jasper is considered to be good for general tissue regeneration; mineral assimilation; and general healing. It is said that darker colors are more grounding, and work well when joined with opals. They are recommended for assisting in quick thinking and helping endure stress.
Sterling silver is a white, highly reflective precious metal composed of 925 parts of pure silver and 75 parts alloy, usually copper. Copper provides the silver with sufficient hardness and wearing qualities, as pure silver is sometimes considered too soft to be used or worn everyday.
At times, we oxidize or "antique" our finished sterling pieces to blacken the recessed areas, and then rub the rest of the piece to a high white shine. Oxidizing can give a piece of jewelry wonderful depth and rustic feel.
