DESCRIPTION: From the Graveyard Diggins on the Oregon/Idaho border. This is primarily yellow to yellow-brown to green-brown moss in a clear to blueish-agate base. There is one large open fracture extending through the piece, but cabbing is still possible. Extremely hard material will take a high polish. MEASUREMENTS: 5 1/2 X 4 1/2 X 2 1/4 inches WEIGHT: 2 lb 14 oz ~ 1304 grams PITTING/VUGS: None present FRACTURES*: One major open fracture present. * Almost all rocks, jasper and agate have some fractures scattered throughout them, and these may not be visible or noticeable by me during the cutting and handling process. I use mineral oil when cutting and when photographing the rough and the cut face. The oil can sometimes obscure occult fractures and they may go unnoticed.
