    Your ocean jasper pendant is the most fantastic color. Is this the natural color or is it color enhanced? Regardless the necklace is a gorgeous piece of work just like everything else you have shared with us.

    As to the question by Little Round Chick above, I do not believe the ocean jasper has been enhanced. Thanks, for the comments.
