Here for your consideration is an outstanding,scenic Blue Biggs Jasper Cabochon. Biggs Jasper, also known as “Biggs-Formation Picture Jasper” is a combination of chalcedony, sedimentary microcrystalline quartz, and silicated volcanic ash. It was formed during a volcanic eruption and is part of a Miocene series of rocks called the John Day Formation, near Biggs, Oregon.
This jasper was discovered in the 1960s, while building Highway 97 near Biggs Junction, Oregon. The area has been since paved over and has making the material quite scarce. These highly-prized stones, are often cut to represent landscape scenery. Biggs Jasper is a natural wonder depicting the great beauty of the earth it was born in.
Vitreous polish front and back. Standard radius dome.
This attractive cabochon will make a bold wire wrap or precious metal setting. Quite an heirloom collectible as well.
Skillfully hand cut and polished by Lexx. Photographed dry under full spectrum LED's and under direct sunlight.
