~ Willow Creek jasper cab ~

Offered here is a remarkable cabochon of Willow Creek jasper, from Idaho. Affectionately dubbed the queen of jaspers, this material certainly deserves its reputation among the classic porcelain jaspers. It's a long time favorite in my studio, and has become particulary difficult to obtain in the top quality everyone most desires. This example has a palette that inludes rosy pinks, and creamy chiffon pastels of gold and green, a bit brighter and darker than these photos depict. Some areas of the stone have a surprising degree of semi-translucence that are quite delightfully gemmy... so if you like this enchanting beauty, be sure to grab it and make it yours! It has a very nicely rounded dome of 5.5mm, a smoothly executed designer 'fan' shape, and a gleaming polish both front and back.

Size: 48x31mm
Weight: approximately 46 carats
