"I have a tumbled leopard skin jasper that chipped when I accidentally dropped it. I was surprised to see that underneath was white! Like the outside pattern was painted on. I'm unsure what it means but I immediately felt like it was fake. What does this mean?"



Hi there Q,

Natural Leopardskin jasper isn't going to be completely white on the inside. It could be if your piece is more creamy in color, but the natural appearance is still going to mimic the polished/tumbled stone. The color just won't be as saturated and the patterning could be less visible in its natural state.
If it was a small chip, then it's very possible that it could show up the way it did for you.

An easy test you can do to see if it's painted or dyed is to use 100% acetone and see if anything rubs off when rubbing with acetone.

What does the break/chip mean? Most likely nothing if you accidentally dropped it. Human error happens and not every time your stone breaks or chips does it metaphysically mean something.
