This is an unknown Orbicular Jasper I have. It may be from California but I am just unsure of its location. It has real nice well defined floating orbs. In a hematite, black base matrix. Polished on both sides and on the thin side at 4mm. It will make a nice jewelry or crafting project piece.
Visit my Sold cabochon Gallery to see past opals I have cut. You will find other examples of materials, shapes, sizes, colors, and in general see my work there. Some stones date back over 15 years in there. I don’t show everything I cut, just the ones I really liked over the years. Please let me know if you have any questions about those materials.
Its also important to visit your local rockclub if you have one near by. Its a great place to start if you are new to gems and minerals. Thank you.
