Kowallabe Quartzite, Rough Rock, per lb

$12.00

Kowallabe Quartzite is a newly mined quartzite from Australia with a hardness of about 5 to 6. It features translucent sections of white and gray with pink banding and patterning, but also has opaque portions with earthy tones of black, green, and orange, and flashes of golden yellow commonly along the edges. Overall, the patterning is very dramatic, and it can be cut either with the formational banding or against, resulting in very different patterns on the cut edge. 

 

Price is per pound, minimum order 5 lbs. Shapes, sizes, and color will vary between rocks. Picture shows the rock wet.
