Thread: Jaspers!

    Default Jaspers!

    Who likes them? Who collects them?
    My obsessive streak has recently moved into collecting jaspers. I've been on Etsy a great deal!

    I've bought some pendants to mix with fabulous earrings I bought from Kojima.
    I've also bought specimens!

    Fiona,

    Oh, I so agree with you that jaspers are fascinating! Some of the jaspers you show are from Oregon! The same volcanic areas that produce jaspers also are responsible for sunstone, fire opal and common opal, agates and more! In many states there are various kinds of gemstone mining , sometimes even public digs.

    After finding a few agates at the beach when I was a kid, I was hooked forever! Pearls are a wonderful compliment to the organic and opaque gemstones, imo.

    Please show us your Kojima earrings!

    I have several necklaces that are not getting much love while I'm layered in pearls. Time to dig them out and take a few photos.

    Heaps are from Oregon, it's wonderful. Deschutes, Biggs and Owyhee are fantastic.
    Sorry for the late response - I've posted some of the earrings on my other thread....
