Maligano Jasper, Indonesia, Rough Rock, per lb
Maligano jasper is a specific type of jasper found in Indonesia and forms in ancient volcanic hot spring areas. It is named after a small village in Sulawesi, Indonesia, and was found less than 10 years ago. Maligano is known for its contrasting hues of blue, yellow, red, green, and grey with brecciated patterning plus its fun dendrite patterns, making the stone often show various landscape and water scenes.
This material is great to cut for both beginners and experts. Because of the patterns there is very little waste, and when slabbing the pattern can change quickly making each slab and cabochon unique. The material is relatively soft and comparable to cutting Sonora Dendritic or Picasso stone.
Pieces range from .25 - 7+ lbs in size.
