Jaspers have been used for ornamental purposes and gemstones from ancient times. Jasper is one of the stones for Virgo and is the mystical birthstone for October. They are microcrystalline Quartz in association with a variety of other minerals and organic material, which give the Jaspers colorful patterns and bands.
