This lovely deep red Cave Creek Jasper extra large collector cabochon is 95 mm (3.75 inches!) by 42 mm and 6.5 mm thick.
Cave Creek Jasper was found near the city of Cave Creek in Arizona.
At one time this Jasper was all over the ground, but now the area is a state park and the semiprecious material is no longer collected and it is increasingly difficult to come by.
Metaphysical properties: Red Jasper is called a stone of fairness and justice because mystical lore claims that it decreases unjustness and helps in unfair situations. It is also said to enhance responsibility, choice, and compassion. It is also said to assist in protection and rescue from danger.
