Leopard Skin Jasper Rock Slab 21

  • 1995

Leopard Skin Jasper, more likely a type of rhyolite, is found in several locations throughout the world however this particular material is from Mexico.   Aptly named, the orbicular jasper with mottled reds, pinks, yellows, greens, and browns, resemble the fur of a leopard.  The colors likely developed from iron and manganese during formation.  Even though it is a bit soft it still takes a good polish and will make great cabs with strong patterns.
