Dead Camel Jasper

Dead Camel Jasper

Dead Camel is a relatively new find in the Dead Camel mountains of northern Nevada. It's an amazing stone that looks a lot like a map with roads surrounding territories of turquoise blue and varying shades of red and pink. I would classify it among the porcelain jaspers of eastern Oregon as it is very hard and takes a mirror shine.

I bought two small pieces at the Quartzite pow-wow, but was put off by the 25 doller per pound price tag. The seller owns the claim so there's not much alternative. Perhaps some day when I can round up a couple of disposable C-notes, I'll buy a good slabbing piece. Until then, there's pictures. *sigh*
