Description
~ Dead Camel jasper cab ~

Offered here is a cabochon cut from Dead Camel jasper, mined and brought to market by Walt Harrison and Philip Stevenson. At first I thought they'd chosen a terrible moniker, until I realized it's quite appropriately named after the area of its source, Nevada's Dead Camel mountains.

I have to say I really enjoy this jasper, even more than I expected I would. It's nice and solid, and features wildly busy brecciated patterns in a highly contrasting mix of colors. Somewhat reminiscent of top shelf Owyhee jasper, on steroids! Try some in your next creative endeavor; I've no doubt you'll love it! This stone has a well rounded dome of 5mm, and a curvy designer shape that's beautifully polished both front and back.

Size: 56x17mm
Weight: approximately 37 carats
