Noreena Jasper Cabochons
Noreena Jasper is a new semi precious gemstone material that comes from the Pilbara region of Western Australia, some 700 miles north of the capital, Perth.
Noreena Jasper is a silicified pelite (mudstone) and is believed to be 2765-2687 million years old. Noreena Jasper tends to break into angular pieces which contain the most wonderful "geometric", abstract designs. Until the rock is cut into a designer cabochon, you do not know what will be revealed.
Jasper is from the chalcedony family. It is a microcrystalline quartz that contains up to 20% foreign material. These materials are what determine the color and appearance of the gemstone.
Metaphysical Properties: Jasper is said to have a stabilizing effect, and helps one take all their energy and use it in a balanced manner. Jasper is also said to be a stone that helps in all areas of survival, and is a very protective stone.
