Jasper is an opaque (light doesn't pass through it) variety of chalcedony that has been colored due to various mineral inclusions in the stone. In the case of red jasper, the deep red color is most often attributed to iron inclusions. Red jasper is one of the most abundant varieties of jasper and is frequently found in association with large iron deposits.
