Porcelain Jasper - immediately identifiable by it's silky look and tawny colour. From a beige to a purple grey, from pinks to burgundy brown, the colours of this jasper seem to imply sophistication and quiet elegance, good taste, and old money.
Porcelain Jasper is a brecciated (broken) jasper found high in the Sierra Madre Montains of Sonora, Mexico - about a hundred miles northeast of Hermosilla, Mexico (just in case you're out driving around there!) It was discovered years ago, on a gold claim.
It has a hardness of 7.
