~ Tahoma jasper cab ~

Offered here is a cabochon of Tahoma jasper, from the slopes of Mt. Rainier in Washington state. The local American Indian name for that same mountain is Tahoma, which translates roughly to 'next to heaven', and it is considered to be a sacred place. So someone chose a great name for this terrific and very rare material. The colors are typical of the material, with several shades of light and dark slate blue, brown, cream, and yellow ochre. This stone has but a few of the all too typical fractures, and whatever tiny lines that may be present seem well healed. It has a rounded dome of 6mm, and a slender designer drop shape, nicely polished both front and back.

Size: 48x15mm
Weight: approximately 31 carats

Price: SOLD See current gemstones for sale
