Picture Jaspers from the Northwest is a handsome book for both pure enjoyment or reference. It’s loaded with images and scientific information. It was compiled by friends Hans Gamma and Lauritz Jensen. In November 2019, we met Lauritz at the Sedona Gem and Mineral Club meeting. We learned he is a teacher of microbiology at Midwestern University. His presentation was on the classification of Jaspers from all areas of the world. He speaks highly of Hans, and we snatched up a box of their beautiful book!
