Owyhee Picture Jasper Stone Slab for Lapidary



A lovely slab of Owyhee Picture Stone.

There are several different varieties of Owyhee but I am unsure which this would be.
Old stock, this came from a three generation lapidary that we purchased in 2023.

Picture stone like this is not actually a jasper but a highly silicated sandstone.
It is a sedimentary rock rather than a metamorphosed one and there is no crystal structure.
Many of these stones are part opal, but this one does not appear to be.

It should take a good, matte shine but not likely a high polish.

6.5 x 3.5 x .29 inches (7mm)
