Picture Nguni Unprocessed, Rough Stones
Picture Nhuni is a jasper with bands and patterns that resemble the markings on Nguni cattle. Both the stones and the Nguni cattle are found in South Africa.
The cryptocrystalline structure of the stones contains various minerals that impart wonderful colours in patterns and bands.
Jasper, an aggregate of microgranular quartz and/or chalcedony and other mineral phases, is an opaque, impure variety of silica, usually red, yellow, brown or green in colour.
Unlike agate, jasper is opaque and light does not shine through it.
