The material is a brecciated Chalcedony material with red Jasper in a deep green to cloudy grey matrix. You will also notice minor little gold glitter-like inclusions which are specular inclusions of Pyrite!
From Swaziland. Very Good to A Grade. Size approx 10.5cm. Weight approx 562g.
The mineral aggregate Heliotrope (trade name Bloodstone) is given to various combinations of green material with red spots. If the material is translucent, it is called green Chalcedony, or Plasma. If it is solid opaque, it is called green Jasper.
The red spots are classically formed by the inclusion of iron oxide. However it can also be the result of Actinolite or Hornblende needle inclusions, depending on the material. Plasma with white or yellow spots is also referred to as Bloodstone in the retail sector.
