fruity jasper, real or fake

0 votes

Recently I've seen a stone composed of a bright patchwork of colors on eBay called "fruity jasper" but can't find fruity jasper anywhere else online. Is this a manmade-in-China stone or naturally occurring form of jasper.

That definitely sounds like a made-up marketing name, and I never heard that expression for Jasper before. The made-made or dyed material can usually be visually identified, so please feel free to post some pictures so I can take a look.
