Picasso Jasper marble crystal is also known as Picasso Stone, Picasso Marble, Silk Stone, Black Line Jasper, and Spider Web Jasper. Picasso marble colors are brown, black, cream, and various shades of gray often form the patterns of abstract landscapes. A major clue to the meaning of this stone can be found from the process through which these patterns form. Picasso jasper also called Picasso marble or simply Picasso stone is metamorphic limestone.
Metamorphosis is one of the three ways stones are formed. Geologically, a metamorphic stone forms deep in the earth, its essential nature altered by heat and pressure. It may go through metamorphosis more than once, and each time new elements are added to its composition. Only those aspects of the stone which are impermeable to pressure and heat are preserved.
Of the metamorphic stones, the patterns of Picasso jasper are particularly striking. Marble is crystallized dolomite or calcium carbonate and is a type of metamorphosed limestone. This type of marble is only found in one location, in Utah in the USA.

Jasper is considered highly restorative for tissue deterioration of the internal organs, and useful in treating disorders of the kidneys, spleen, bladder, liver and stomach. It may also aid in balancing mineral content and regulating supplies of iron, sulfur, zinc, and manganese within the body. [Melody, 345][Megemont, 102]
Jasper water is soothing for the digestive system, and is particularly useful as a gem elixir because it does not over stimulate the body. It may be made by the indirect method, or by letting the stone soak in demineralized water overnight. [Hall, 155][Megemont, 102]
