Rainforest Jasper is a kind of Rhyolitic lava that can be found in volcanic areas. During the solidification process, gas bubbles are trapped inside and are filled by a siliceous material, such as Quartz Crystals, Jaspers, and other minerals. It’s common to see quartz patches in the stone. And depending on where they originated from, Rainforest Jasper can also contain Nepholite and Feldspar. It has a brown-green background with more similarities with a Granite than a Jasper or a Chalcedony. It’s a combination of different colors that are predominantly brown, orange tan, caramel, yellow, and green. Rainforest Jasper is also known as Australian Rainforest Jasper, Rainforest Rhyolite, Spherulitic Rhyolite, Agatised Rhyolite, and Green Rhyolite.
