Peanutwood Jasper, a visually striking variant of jasper, is a unique and visually striking type of chalcedony—a microcrystalline form of quartz. It stands out due to the distinct, fossilized remains of prehistoric plant material within its dark brown to black matrix. Often resembling peanuts, this fossilized plant material gives rise to the name “Peanutwood Jasper.” The term “jasper” originates from the Greek word “iaspis,” translating to “spotted stone.” It is used to describe various opaque, fine-grained, and densely patterned varieties of chalcedony, typically found in a range of earthy colors.
