Jasper is an opaque, impure variety of silica, usually red, yellow or brown in color. Jasper is used for ornamentation or as a gemstone. It can be highly polished and is used for vases, seals and snuff boxes. Jasper was a favorite gem in the ancient world. Its name can be traced back in Hebrew, Assyrian, Persian, Greek and Latin. On Crete jasper was used to produce seals circa 1800 BC at the palace of Knossos.
