~ Butterfly wing jasper cab ~

Offered here is a sweet cabochon of fine old stock butterfly wing jasper, from Mexico. This long time favorite brecciated jasper is a seldom seen classic, and mighty tough to come by these days, in any kind of quality. This cab is a very interesting example, with plenty of colorfully varied figure, best described by the photos. I will say that my son insists there's a fuzzy white capped mushroom in the stone, but it looks more like a toadstool to me. heh! The front has no cracks or pits, just pattern, but the backside does have a thin shallow fracture; nonetheless, the stone is perfectly sound, so you just can't go wrong with this special stone, it won't disappoint! The cab has a nicely rounded dome of 6mm, a graceful designer 'almond' shape, and a slick glassy polish both front and back.

Size: 45x24mm
Weight: approximately 47 carats

Price: Sold
