Desert Sunset

2 years ago 1195 Views

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.
