Large Red Jasper tumbled stone Pendant with a 925 silver bail.
Jasper is a microcrystalline variation of quartz that has been prized as a gemstone since ancient times.
The red colour is due to included iron but the colour of jasper can range from yellow, red, brown and sometimes even green.
These are stones that were tumble polished in a rock tumbler.
The rough stones are put into the tumbler with abrasive grit where they are tumbled for weeks, during this time the sharp edges are rounded off.
During the process, ever finer grits are used and so the stones are slowly getting a smooth and shiny surface.
The final stage of the tumbling process is using a special polishing powder instead of abrasive grit to polish the stones to a mirror finish.
