RESERVED Small Willow Creek Jasper Pendant Yellow / Green Stone Wire Wrapped Sterling Silver

Willow creek jasper is one of the super fine, American porcelain jaspers. This stone has the orby line pattern in yellow, yellow/green. Willow jaspers are in my top 10 of favorite stones. They come in lots of colors- all beautiful pastels.

This wire wrapped pendant is made with sterling silver wire, it is not filled, coated or plated. I tried to keep this simple, but since it is small I added some sparkly twisted wire to catch the light.

More about Willow Creek Jasper:

Willow Creek Jasper is called the "Queen of Jaspers" and for good reason. It is one of the finest of the porcelain jaspers. As a jasper, it is a form of opaque, impure chalcedony. This dense jasper achieves a liquid polish reminiscent of fine china. Willow Creek Jasper is found in one location in Idaho. It is found in a variety of pastel colors and patterns. One pattern, the prized orb pattern, arises because it is found within rounded nodules, called "thundereggs". The thunder eggs can be as large as 10 feet across, all are very difficult to extract from the surrounding rhyolite rock. Lucky for lapidary artists, Willow Creek Jasper contains fewer fractures than other fine jaspers.
