Diameter: 6cm

Weight: 286g

Locality: Marovato, Ambolobozo, Analalava, Sofia, Madagascar

 

I only have a few of this to share – it belongs to the very first vein first discovered in Marovato which was mined in the early 2000s and has been carefully handcrafted to form this spherical shape, back in those time when people hand-polished the crystals without the help of the machines.  This beautiful and colorful Chalcedony var. Orbicular Jasper crystal sphere is measuring 6 cm in diameter.  The bulls-eyes and orbs patterns are sharp and outstanding.  Vugs of druzy Quartz intergrowth can also be observed.  Chalcedony of this species is also called Ocean Jasper because it was originally collected along the northwest shoreline of Madagascar.  It is way more beautiful in person than photos.  Comes with a high quality copper display stand as pictured.
