Morrisonite

This cabochon was cut from the heel end of a rock; I bought it thinking it was Bruneau Jasper, but as I took off the matrix and shaped it, it revealed itself to be Morrisonite instead! No, I wasn't disappointed! From the "shattered glass" pattern at lower right (which was the end of the rock) to the pale blue areas at the top, this is a very nice example. There is a tiny chip on the back edge, not visible from the front, along a sealed fracture. I yanked and pulled at the cab, and it's stable.

32mm x 28mm x 7mm.   Weight: 43.30 carats.

Every one of my cabochons is custom cut to take the best advantage of the particular slab from which it is fashioned. Colors may vary somewhat from what is pictured due to differences in computer monitors.
