Stromatolites are one of the earliest known fossils, and in some locations around the world, they are still being formed! With Apple Valley Jasper, each layer is a unique story, as the geological events and mineral contents of the surrounding water and sediment; gives it the color and pattern it displays! Apple Valley Jasper often features bright reds, with gorgeous lines displayed. They can also have hematite flowers, which really create some captivating cabochons!
