This slice of Western Australian Snakeskin Jasper, polished on one side, 425gms, 15x10cms, 9mm thick, $55.00. snake62
Snakeskin Jasper occurs in the Pilbara region of Western Australia. This gemstone occurs as seams of jaspilite in a banded iron formation. It is 2500 million years old, so metamorphism and folding has added other interesting features such as cross cutting quartz veins and contortions to the unusual banding.###This slice is a wonderful example with the quartz veins- great specimen!
