Fantasy Jasper Lapidary Slabs

Fantasy Jasper Lapidary Slabs

Fantasy Jasper is a relatively new find from Chihuahua, Mexico.  It has colorful red and orange orbs.  Although not a lot is written about it, it appears to actually be a rhyolite, a volcanic ash that hs been silicified into jasper.  The orbicular patterns are commonly seen in rhyolite, which is often mis-named jasper.  Mexico is full of volcanoes due to its geologic setting with a small oceanic plate off the west coast subducting under the continent.

Please enlarge and view the photographs for more detailed views. Shown wet to simulate polish. As with all natural rock, there may be fractures or pits to seal or work around. Each slab has the approximate dimensions listed. I use the longest and widest point and the thinnest, it’s not averaged.

We have worked hard with the lighting and the settings on the camera so that the colors are very accurate. Individual settings may affect color viewing on various devices and I cannot predict what your device will do, but on my computer, they’re dead on for color. I appreciate your business!
