Description
~ Royal Sahara jasper cab ~

Offered here is a splendid cabochon of Royal Sahara jasper, discovered in the form of nodules in the North African Sahara desert. This particular cab of RSJ porcelain jasper looks a lot like 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 remarkably scenic example includes a rolling hillock with streamers of rich browns against a background of creamy tan shades, and a scattering of jet black dendrites adding some 'foliage'. This stone has a well rounded dome of 5mm, a versatile designer 'pillow' shape, and a brilliantly glassy polish both front and back.

Size: 43x20mm
Weight: approximately 42 carats
