Description
~ Royal Sahara jasper cab ~

Offered here is a splendid cabochon of Royal Sahara jasper, cut from fabulous material that was discovered a few years back in the form of nodules in the North African Sahara desert. This particular cab of RSJ porcelain jasper is reminiscent of Oregon's Biggs and Deschutes jaspers, even though it originated on the other side of the planet, with very similar patterns and colors. No wonder; all three jaspers are said to be composed of silicified mud! This example has flowing ribbons of rich browns framing a rather scenic center, suggesting windblown sands in creamy tan to olive shades, perhaps akin to where this jasper originated. A scattering of jet black dendrites adds a touch of 'foliage'. This stone has a well rounded dome of 6mm, a versatile designer drop shape, and a brilliantly glassy polish both front and back.

Size: 50x24mm
Weight: approximately 58 carats
