You can recognize a specimen of Blue Mountain picture jasper by its dark, blue-black core often bordered by beige and green bands. However, its most noticeable feature is the inclusion of olive, tan and blue orbs that float throughout. This variety is a favorite of lapidarists and is often cut into cabochons for jewelry.
