This natural semi precious stone cabochon material is named Cherry Creek Jasper.
It is also known as Red Creek Jasper, Red River Jasper or Picasso Jasper.
This colorful jasper is found in a vein near the Red River in Mainland China.
Most Jaspers get their name from either their location or their appearance. Cherry Creek Jasper (and Red Creek Jasper) are both names used after its location in China. It is found in the Cherry Creek mine and the Red River flows nearby.
Though some of this lapidary material is too soft to be a true jasper, we hand select the best! so our Cherry Creek Jasper makes excellent semi precious gemstone designer cabochons and wears well in jewelry.
