    Pam, I’ve been wondering the same thing about the Coffee BeanJasper/Crazy Horse stone connection. I have both and they sure look the same to me.

    THIS my friend is gorgeous! Love your wire work!

    I think the coffee bean jasper and the crazy horse jasper are the same stone – I too have both and you cannot tell the difference. I have had this happen with other gemstones as well
