Cherry creek jasper also known as Red Creek Jasper or Picasso Jasper is a beautiful, veiny stone mined from the Cherry Creek Mine in China. There are a wide variety of colors and brecciated patterns in the stone. Though it's typically referred to as a jasper, it's not a jasper in a true sense as it's primary component is dolomite, not chalcedony. Like most dolomitic rocks and jaspers it would have formed from sediment laid down by an ancient ocean.
Washington state has now joined over a dozen other states to put in place “shelter in place” or “stay at home” orders. While we agree this is the correct course of action, it will have a substantial impact on our business. It effectively shuts down much of our company for several weeks.
We will continue taking orders on our website and we will have a single staff member at our warehouse to facilitate shipping of these new orders. Depending on the order volume this may mean that we do experience some shipping delays, particularly with large or fragile items that require more packaging time.
These shutdowns are particularly devastating to all small businesses who don’t have significant cash reserves and rely on constant cash flow to pay their fixed expenses (payroll, rent, loan payments, etc) We hope that you will continue to support us and satisfy your fossil fix during these trying times.
