Imperial Orbicular Jasper Brutalist Pendant
A very rare org forming jasper from Mexico set in a Brutalist style 925 Sterling Silver setting by seasoned lapidary artist Vaughn Nagel.
Jasper is an opaque rock of virtually any color stemming from the mineral content of the original sediments or ash. Patterns arise during the consolidation process forming flow and depositional patterns in the original silica rich sediment or volcanic ash. Hydrothermal circulation is generally thought to be required in the formation of jasper.
