Rocky Butte Picture Jasper Rock Slab 07
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 the variety.
Rocky Butte is a distinctive Owyhee jasper noted for its cobweb markings and mottling. The colors are typically vivid bright greens, reds, blues and yellows.
Dimensions: 4" x 2" and is approximately 13 mm thick on the right tapering to 10 mm on the left. Weight = 148 grams.
