“Mariposa” is Spanish for “Butterfly” and that’s why you would see either “Mariposa Jasper” or “Butterfly Jasper” referring to the same type of silicified thundereggs passed as jasper. Normally, we would prefer to get the thundereggs with agate cores in them, but in the case of Mariposa Jasper thundereggs, it’s reversed where we would prefer solid thundereggs without any agate filled cavities. That’s because the solid thundereggs tend to have interesting geometric patterns, and they can have splashes of black, yellow, red, tan, and brown. The opened cavities of any thundereggs tend to contain white to colorless horizontal banded agates, sometimes with yellow to orange opal layers.
