Oregon Picture Jasper Rock Slab 26

  • 1895

The eastern part of Oregon is known for the prolific jasper deposits found there.  There are many varieties and many look alike and can only be distinguished by the very specific characterizations known to the miners and experts within the field.  When possible, the region or name as given by the person from whom the collection was acquired will be noted, however, it is nearly impossible for me to confidently verify every variety.  

Owyhee Jasper is known for its buckskin brown and tan pattern often times with very distinctive red highlights and dendritic scenes.  It is a very hard, fine-grained jasper which takes a superior polish and makes spectacular cabs.

Origin:  Oregon

Dimensions:  3" x 3.25" and is approximately 6.6 mm thick.  Weight = 124 grams. 

Shown wet.  Not polished. Known flaws are shown as white lines in the final picture frame.
