Howardite Rock Slab 02
Howardite also known as "Rattlesnake Jasper" and “Royal Flamingo Jasper” is a rare form of opalized/silicate volcanic tuff from northern Nevada. It is a very unique and beautiful red to brown brecciated jasper interspersed with clear agate. The deposit is said to have been first dug in the 1950s and then was lost and then rediscovered about 2015-2016. Even though it is prone to small pits, it takes a great polish and cuts gorgeous featherlike cabs.
Dimensions: 4.5" x1.5" and approximately 6 mm thick. Weight = 43 grams.
