    Oh wow! Thats some crazy stuff, kinda reminds me of salt water taffy. I had no idea it came in chunks that big. Its one of the only rocks found around my area and its in little nodules golfball or smaller and not very common at that. Cant wait to see some of those points.

        At least around here (east Texas) Jasper was second only to pet wood from the archaic onward

            That's nuts! Where did you order the rock from? Dare I ask how much it cost?

              Trades are always good, I like that. It beats paying full price.

              Goldfield jasper is about he most amazing material regarding its response to heat treatment. It gets very glossy and smooth, kind of unique. I dont remember the time and temp but that info is easy to find.
