This intriguing semi precious gemstone material from India, is also known as Elephant Jasper, Elephant Skin Jasper, Cobra Stone, Calligraphy Stone, Script Stone, and probably a few others I haven't heard! But we like Coquina Jasper best because it is more accurate. "Coquina" is the Spanish word for cockleshells or shellfish.
