Origin of jasper red
Jasper is a fine-grained quartz and related to chalcedony. It is formed by silicon dioxide, which seeps through the soil and absorbs admixtures such as alumina, iron oxide, iron hydroxide and manganese hydroxide. The formation of jasper also causes quartz to grow together with opal. Since the distribution and quantity of these admixtures is decisive for its appearance, jasper forms different colours and shapes.
