SOLD Bruneau Jasper Bruneau River Canyon near Filer, Idaho
I use the term 'specimen' to refer to a half nodule and 'slab' to refer to the slices that were cut like salami from a larger rock. In the case of this piece the excess material on the back was removed by a saw cut. It is necessary to remove the hard matrix from Bruneau specimens and a saw cut is a safer approach than the hammer. Both the color and the pattern are quite rare in this classic 'Fancy Jasper' specimen. Butler Collection.
