Dragon Blood Jasper Characteristics
Contrary to its name, natural Dragon Blood Jasper is not actually a true Jasper, rather it belongs to the Chalcedony Quartz mineral family. These gemstones contain a mineral called epidote which gives it the distinctive green color while the red is from the piemontite mineral deposits. Both the epidote and piemontite minerals are what connects these stones so strongly to the Heart chakra. It comes in raw form (grainy appearance) or in a polished finish which has a glassy luster.
