Geological Properties and History
River Creek Jasper, also called Cherry Creek jasper, is a colorful jasper that was discovered in Mainland China in 2010. The miners were looking for turquoise when they found this lovely red, green, yellow, blue-gray and black stone instead.
This jasper is mined in China and is named for the creek that flows through the area where it was first found.

Jasper is a member of the chalcedony family. Chalcedony is any form of quartz where the crystals are too small to be seen without high magnification. Jasper usually refers to an opaque stone with a solid color or an irregular display of colors caused by various mineral impurities. The name is derived from the Greek word that means "spotted stone." The common red color is due to iron inclusions.
