Rainforest Jasper is most often referred to as Rhyolite. This is a predominantly quartz-based stone that sometimes contains trapped gasses that produce vugs (or small caves) in the rock. These vugs can contain crystals, opal or glassy material that gives each stone a very different and unique look.

This igneous rock typically forms in volcanic areas where granitic magma touches and cools a surface. These eruptions are rare, as only three have happened since 1900.

The name Jasper means "Spotted or speckled stone" and is derived from the Old French term jaspre. Jasper is known to have been a favorite gem in the ancient world; its name can be traced back in Arabic, Persian, Hebrew, Assyrian, Greek and Latin. On Minoan Crete, jasper was carved to produce seals circa 1800 BC, as evidenced by archaeological recoveries at the palace of Knossos.
