Plasma is a dull green variety of chalcedony which is cryptocrystalline quartz. Its green colour is due to the presence of masses of chlorite. It is usually cut en cabochon, or into beads. It is often quite coarse and therefore is closely related to jasper, another group of quartz.
Plasma often contains yellow or white spots. When it contains red spots of jasper it is known as bloodstone or heliotrope.
