Referred to as Dragon Blood Jasper or Dragon Stone, this large cabochon a nicely patterned rich bluish green color with great webbing veins with just a few spots of reddish orange and subtle white ribbon cloud-like patterns in part the base. This stone has a great translucency and is nice large example of this great Australian material.
Dragon Blood Jasper (a/k/a Dragon Stone) Designer Cut Cabochon
46.2 x 28.5 x 6.3mm
I cut this cab by hand and it's been highly polished both front and back with slightly rounded bottom edges for easy setting.
Note that all my photos were taken using full spectrum lighting, which does fairly well in replicating natural sunlight. However, almost all cut stones will look best and brightest in direct sunlight.
I don't know a great deal about Dragon Blood Jasper other than the fact that it is from Australia. It is often found with veins or spots of deep red to orange-yellow in it, hence the dragon "blood". Though this stone is a mix of a variety of minerals, I've read that the main composition is Chrysocolla and the red portions are primarily Cuprite, but I haven't verified that so far. Either way, it is certainly an interesting and beautiful stone.
