1) Jasper
2) derived from an old French word 'jaspre' meaning 'spotted stone'(also found it on another site to be from a Persian word meaning 'treasurer', but not sure of the legitimacy of this)
3) SiO2
4) silica-rich sediment or volcanic ash, thought to involve hydrothermal cycling
edit: LOL, tense issues fixed.
