You may have noticed a new Mine Finds called Desert Sunset. To the naked eye it resembles the golden brown of Tiger’s Eye but without the cat’s eye effect (chatoyancy) plus the stone contains a prominent, wide banding. The wide bands alternate in layers of jasper and chert, with narrow bands of black hematite.When polished it takes on a pretty ombre effect.
You’ll find Desert Sun deposits in several areas of Western Australia.Our particular variety is located near a small abandoned gold mine in the midwest region of western Australia.
