Indian Script Stone is a stunning gemstone known for its beautiful cursive script like patterns; it is this pen like affect that makes each stone unique and different. This beautiful gemstone is composed of brown, red, orange and yellow hues contribute to the stone's beauty and distinctiveness.
Indian Script Stone, also known as Coquina Jasper, Script Stones, Cobra Jasper, Arabic Script, and several other names, is a kind of jasper with shells or coral imbedded in the sedimentary rock. It is these shells or coral that give this stone its distinctive patterns, making no two stones the same. Indian Script Stone is a consolidated sedimentary rock of biochemical origin, mainly composed of the mineral calcite, often including some phosphate, in the form of seashells or coral. The stone forms near the shore, where wave action is vigorous and sorts the sediments well. Jasper has such a distinctly grainy structure compared to other forms of chalcedony that some scientists even put jasper into its own individual group within the quartz family. Indian Script is not usually treated or enhanced in any way and is known to take an excellent polish; however, but the hardness can vary and the stone can have some very tiny surface pits.
Indian Script Stone can be found in several places around the world; however, we source script stone from Rajasthan, India. The stone formed there hundreds of years ago when water surrounded the area.
