Jasper has become a customer favorite, so I have thrown myself back into the search for beautiful stones.
I couldn't believe it when one of my stone dealers started carrying Picasso Jasper Cabochons. They have been as rare as hen's teeth. And to top it off, the stones were all very nice - good colors and patterns. This stone is a nice mix of muted shades: Olive, Caramel, Cream, hints of slate grey and Putty, with a nice overlay of brown veins.
My husband bought me a nifty pair of digital calipers. Now I can make amazingly accurate measurements, in no time at all:
40.18 mm long 30.02 mm wide 8.58 mm high
Buying and selling stones over the internet will always be a distant second to buying the stones in real life - being able to hold them and see the colors for yourself. No matter how hard I try, there is no way I can guarantee that the stone will look exactly like the image you see on your monitor. I *can* guarantee that if you are not happy with your stone, you can return it for a full refund.
