Polychrome Jasper (also called Desert Jasper) is a delightful new find from Madagascar! It was discovered by geologists in 2006 while searching for the currently mined out Ocean Jasper. It was named for its multi colors.
This is one of my favorite stones to work with. Starting with a large stone of the Polychrome is exciting. From the outside it lends no hint to what lies within. Using my favorite saw an 18 inch Diamond saw the first cut is an anticipation to see what is going to be revealed.
The picture of this piece of Polychrome to the right was an end cut. I cut an end cut first to make a straight and to reveal what the future cuts from the stone will look like. As it turned out this end cut was the best cut from the stone. These end cuts are frequently my favorite piece to come out of a stone. This one is a keeper and it part of my private collection. Like most collectors of gems it is often very hard to let some of them go and I tend to hoard many of them. But if someone really wants it my part with it price is $300.00
All Jaspers help balance the emotional energy in the body.
