Maligano Jasper Slab 19
Maligano Jasper from Indonesia made its appearance to the lapidary market about a year ago. A very unusual brecciated jasper in shades of oranges, blues and gray showcases distinctive jasper scenes and occasionally includes a field of dendrites. The material may have some pits and healed fractures but the effort involved in isolating a splendid scene for a cabochon is well worth the effort.
Dimensions: 3" x 2" and approximately 5.6 mm thick. Weight = 55 grams.
Shown wet. Not polished. Flaws are shown as white lines in the last picture frame.
