Leopard Skin Jasper | Stone Information, Healing Properties, Uses All Entries
Leopard skin Jasper is a unique variety of Rhyolite that is known for its distinct spotted pattern that resembles the spots of leopards and jaguars! This speckled pattern displays an earthy color palette of salmon pinks, creams, sienna browns and brick red tones. Leopard Skin Jasper can be found in many different places around the world including Peru, Mexico, Brazil, Africa and any other areas with a history of volcanic eruptions and activity. It is formed from the metamorphic alteration of limestone, sandstone and a variety of other minerals. As the sedimentary deposits became consolidated by the volcanic eruptions, heat and pressure over-time caused the orbicular inclusions to become embedded in the stone. Creating the beautiful dotted pattern.
