Cherry Creek Jasper is a colorful jasper found at the Cherry Creek Mine in mainland China. Sometimes it's also called "Red Creek Jasper" because of the Red Creek River flowing next to the mine.
The colors range from bright oranges and yellows to various greens.
My favorites are the stones with dramatic bursts of red and yellow. I paired this one with Carnelian and Sonoran Sunrise stones.
All Jaspers are members of the Chalcedony family. Chalcedony (kal SED' nee) is any form of microcrystalline quartz, where the crystals are too small to be seen without high magnification. The named is derived from the Greek word which means “spotted stone”. Most Jaspers get their name from either their location or their appearance.
Here are a couple more examples of pieces I've made with the stone. It's one of my favorite stones, for sure.
