High Atlas Jasper Polished Slice
you will receive this exact polished slice
Unlike the smooth-edge slices of High Atlas Jasper that we have sold before, this is a thicker slice with with the edges left natural and unpolished. It is more substantial, heavier in weight, and has a more "rugged" or "naturalistic" appearance.
Of course both the front and back have been polished as usual to show off the amazing patterns within this very unusual stone.
High Atlas Jasper is found in the Atlas Mountains in the North of Morocco where the mountains themselves separate the Atlantic Ocean from the Sahara Desert.
Although called High Atlas Jasper, technically this stone is a type of fine-grained, and very hard, Siltstone, a sedimentary rock.
It is an opaque form of Silica and is found in colours very similar to Mookaite from Australia i.e. browns, rust reds, oranges, creams etc. The almost metallic brown and red veins running through this stone are Iron compounds and the whole mix or blend of colours makes for a very attractive stone.
A wonderful - and unusual - stone with gorgeous patterns that talk to us of ancient landscapes.
