Picture jasper is one of the most visually appealing varieties of cut jasper nodules in the world. This variety is characterized by its resemblance to a landscape painting. A look that is achieved during formation when various layers deposit in bands and often include dendritic, tree-like structures. Despite jasper’s usual iron-rich composition, most picture jasper lacks red pigmentation, usually trading iron for other inclusions. There are many varieties of picture jasper; each with its own look as defined by its formation location. These variations are often named after their locality, such as, Bigg’s jasper and Bruneau jasper, from Oregon and Idaho, respectively.
