Jasper, solid as a Rock. Jaspers are extremely solid crystals that are made of a variety of densely-packed quartz micro-crystals. The combination of different minerals gives it its opaque look and is the reason why it comes in so many different colours, from red and brown, yellow and green to blue and purple.
