Dalmatian Jasper

Dalmatian Jasper

The Dalmatian stone is used in situations where reinforcement and reflection are needed to think through projects and then execute them vigorously.

The Dalmatian stone gets its name from the dog breed of the same name with the dark dots on a light background. Mineralogy knows the Dalmatian stone as aplite. According to studies by the Institute for Gemstone Testing, the Dalmatian stone is a white to light gray, fine-grained, sometimes zoned vein, composed mainly of potassium feldspar and quartz. The black spots in the rock are amphiboles.

The mineralogical name for the Dalmatian jasper is hornblende or aplit; the term porphyry or porphyry used for the Dalmatian stone is mineralogically incorrect.
