When I 1st saw this material about 4 years ago, it had very little red, and the sometimes seen green was never seen. It was primarily blue to light blue-tan rock with darker brownish-tan (sometimes slightly red) lines. It did not interest me too much because the lines were interesting, but the pattern was large and hard to use, and the lines often had unhealed fractures. Many folks, some here, have tossed out rough they got because of too much fracturing, or overly chalky/soft quality.
Many miners seem to have rushed to the area. Either deeper in the claim, or more likely from other claims in the area, darker red lines, and sometimes the host rock with a diffusion of reddish color, and finally sometimes a diffusion of red and green color, began to show up. It had the same hardness (about MOHS 5) and a better proportion of well-healed fractures.
I believe, to distinguish the "new" stuff, vendors began designating it as "Red" Cherry Creek Jasper. Then "Red Creek" became the shorter handle. (Much like Red Crazy Lace vs Crazy Lace, not to mention dropping "Mexican" from the name).
Keep in mind, these are all trade names applied by vendors. Just like Gary Larson's mostly green jasper is generally called "Gary Green", it is also called Larsonite and/or McDermit Bog Wood. In this case too, there are a few names in play. This rock is not even a true jasper. It is too soft. I have seen claims that it is likely silicified calcium-based stone such as dolomite.
I would always look at pictures, because I do not think there is a sufficient standard to permit anyone to use the alternate names accurately to realistically describe varieties of the rock. In fact, in the case of stabilized material, this covers a whole range of practices from sealing fractures, to impregnating soft/porous stone, to reconstituting rock dust.
When it is more silicified, and almost fracture free, with a nice play of color it is very interesting material.
The range of color and pattern is very large. Here are three of my favorite pieces:
While I like FMG as a company, I would never buy this bead from them. All you can expect is some tan to bluish to orangish rock with darker redish lines. Since there is such a wide range of color variation being mined at what appears to be a large scale, I do not think that the pictures they show can be expected to be more than generally representative of the strand you receive, this on top of the unknown stabilization process/chemicals.
I would hand select strands at shows, or get focals from US vendors who have hand selected quality rough with good pattern that does not need stabilization.
