Jasper has become a customer favorite, so I have thrown myself back into the search for beautiful stones.
The grey in this stone is dusted, ever so lightly, with a cocoa brown, and the red and yellow spots near the bottom of the stone warm it rather than dominating it. I liked that effect, and that's why I bought this stone. The three diagonal hashmarks make the composition that much more interesting.
My husband bought me a nifty pair of digital calipers. Now I can make amazingly accurate measurements, in no time at all:
31.00 mm long 17.99 mm wide 4.54 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.
