Polychrome Jasper (also called Desert Jasper or Royal Savannah Jasper) is a relatively recently discovered jasper that’s distinguished by its beautiful and earthy colors (2006). Jasper, a form of chalcedony, is an opaque, impure variety of silica, usually red, yellow, brown or green in color -- LOVE the purple shades this vein has. Takes a beautiful high-shine polish. Examples of cabochons I've made are in the last picture.
Metaphysically, Jasper is known as the 'supreme nurturer'. It is used to sustain and support during times of stress, bringing a sense of tranquility and wholeness. Desert jasper is considered a very grounding, stabilizing and centering stone that deepens one's connection to Mother Earth.
