History

Dalmatian Stone, or Dalmatian Jasper, isn't actually a jasper at all. Jasper has a conchoidal fracture and Dalmatian stone is much softer. It is typically found and mined in Chihuahua, Mexico and is an igneous microcrystalline quartz with a mixture of other minerals creating the speckled look. The distinctive gemstone was named "Dalmatian" due to its likeness to the breed of dog. The black spots are believed to suck up negative or chaotic energy to encourage a good night's sleep.
