This pear shaped cabochon of Poppy Jasper is deep red. Poppy Jasper is an orbicular jasper. Its pattern has small orbs or sphere shapes and was so named because they resemble the poppy flower. This material is usually found in areas with high seismic activity and it usually has fracture lines-both healed and unhealed. Poppy Jasper comes from several locations, but the most well-known AND certainly the prettiest is the Morgan Hill Poppy Jasper from California. In this variety of red jasper the "poppies" are red, orange, white and yellow.
