Vibrant Moroccan Apple Valley Stromatolite Jasper Gemstone Cabochon Hand Crafted By LEXX STONES 94 Carats


Here for your consideration is a wonderful Apple Valley Stromatolite Jasper cabochon. This striking cabochon exhibits vibrant magenta, orange, yellow, green and red with really cool  Quartz crystal inclusions. This material formed more than two billion years ago in the area that is now the Aouli, mine region of Morocco from single cell ancient sea creatures called Stromatolites. As one of the earth's first oxygen producers through photosynthesis, Stromatolites turned the accompanying iron minerals red, thus the bright color. Stromatolites were once thought to be extinct but are still living on earth today. Quite a resilient creature I'd say...

Vitreous polish front and back. Standard radius dome. Hand selected, cut and polished by Lexx.

This cabochon would make a beautiful pendant, either wire wrapped, bezel set , PMC or a dandy collectible - Use your imagination!
