What's Landscape Jasper? Landscape Jasper is an opaque, microcrystalline variety of Quartz with extraordinary color banding, veining and flow patterns created by petrified or silicate mud. On cut/polished stones, these variations appear as detailed images or “landscape scenes.” Because of its unique landscape patterns and wide range of colors, Landscape Jasper is one of the most sought after.
What are lab created stones? The only difference between a lab created gemstone and a natural gemstone is that the natural gemstone most likely has flaws called inclusions, and lab created gemstones have no inclusions, as the mineral composition, heat, and pressure are controlled in the laboratory. Whether a gemstone is a natural stone or lab-created, the physical characteristics are the same.

Metal clay is a crafting medium consisting of very small particles of metal such as silver, gold, bronze, or copper mixed with an organic binder and water for use in making jewelry, beads and small sculptures. Originating in Japan in 1990, metal clay can be shaped just like any soft clay, by hand or using molds. After drying, the clay can be fired in a variety of ways such as in a kiln, with a handheld gas torch, or on a gas stove, depending on the type of clay and the metal in it. The binder burns away, leaving the pure sintered metal.
