All That Glitters
Jasper is maybe not the most glittery stone out there, but what it lacks in sparkle, it makes up for in colors and patterns. Not only can it be found in all sorts of colors (including lovely fall hues such as browns and reds), it's also not uncommon for it to have striation, marbling, rings, speckles, or more throughout.
Have you ever driven through a red light, unaware until your passengers start yelling at you? Have you ever been at a party, but somehow managed to still hear what your friend was saying in a room full of other conversations? Do you turn automatically when someone calls your name? All of this is thanks to the complex and confusing process called attention.
