Picture Jasper is named for the “pictures” that turn up in the stone which look strikingly similar to the landscape they came out of. Picture Jasper is formed from mud that dripped into gas pockets in molten lava. Picture Jasper is linked to ideas, invention, expanded creativity, design, meditation, visions and travel; all that opens the mind.
