Item details

Here's a stunningly patterend cabochon of Deschutes Jasper from the mouth of the Deschutes River, Oregon. This fine grained, sedimentary jasper was discovered and mined exclusively by legendary rock hound Hoot Elkins. It was dug out decades ago; everything on the market now is from old collections. It is found in the same general area as Biggs Jasper, and is known for its outstanding landscape scenes which often mimic the terrain in which it was found.

It is a standard 40 mm x 30 mm and is roughly 6 mm thick. The stone is highly polished and has an even, slightly tapered bezel of approximately 3.5 mm to help with setting in a custom piece of jewellery. The back of the stone has been sanded clean.

This cabochon is a what's known as a "doublet" - a thinner slab with the pattern is glued to a thicker underlying slab. Both slabs in the doublet are deschutes jasper. This technique is used when the lapidary artist wishes to provide sufficient height for a thinner slab.

Great shine on this one, and a fantastic landscape pattern featuring a mix of browns and blues.


FAQs

It is considered standard practice to seal certain vugs or small pits that may appear in a cabochon with clear epoxy. This ensures a smooth, consistent surface when the stone is polished. I will only mention this in a listing if considerable work was done to seal imperfections.

Some stones simply do not photograph all that well. If there is a considerable difference, I will point it out in the listing. Also remember we're all viewing the photos from different monitors with potentially different settings, so some variation may be present.

Yes, I will combine shipping for multiple items where appropriate. In these cases I will refund the difference on the shipping after I have mailed out the items.

I will only list cabochons if they meet my standards: even domes and bezels, no visible flat spots or scratches, and high polish. I want you to be happy with the stones, and take pride in the piece of custom jewellery you set them in.

Some of the items in my shop are handmade by me, and others are vintage stones cut many years ago which I have accumulated in my collection. I state the status of each item in the listing.
