Stone of the month
MATTE RED CREEK JASPER combines softly muted shades of burnt red, olive green and mustard yellow in patterns reminiscent of a picturesque sunset. Also known as Cherry Creek Jasper, Red Picasso and Multi-Picasso. Metaphysically, it is believed by some to bring balance and relaxation, and like all jaspers, it is a stone of protection and grounding. Mohs hardness: 7 Country of origin: China
