Strikingly patterned noreena jasper is also known as red Australian picture jasper, and is sometimes spelled norena jasper. These semiprecious beads and cabochons come in matte and polished styles, and display wonderful abstract designs in rusty red, mustard yellow, and white. Noreena jasper is mined in the Pilbara region of Australia. This semiprecious gemstone is a silicified pelite (mudstone) and tends to break in angular pieces. Keep in mind that gemstones are created by Mother Nature! The components you buy will have their own unique markings; their patterns will not look identical to the images below.
