Lake County Jasper rough slab
Origin: Cobb Mt. Lake County, Calif.
Characteristics: mix of brown, tan and cream colors with small orbs, no open fractures or pits. It makes unique cabs, similar to Poppy and Ocean Jasper. Some naturally sealed fractures with brown matrix, this is normal for this material. Produces a beautiful mirror polish, see my last 2 pictures of a cab I made, the last picture shows the light bulb. This cab is my last one for sale.
I purchased this rough from an estate sale and was told it was found in the 60's somewhere in Lake County, California. One person said he thinks it came from Cobb Mountain in Northern Calif.
This slab is not like a normal rough slab, I've taken the time to remove all or most of the pits and fracture lines to produce a more acceptable slab for cabs or specimen. I used 180 or 325 diamond grit to sand the edges, and smooth the front and back to make it easier for you to finish.

First 2 pictures taken wet to bring out colors you may see after polishing. Remaining pictures taken dry to show imperfections if any. If it's transparent one picture is taken with backlighting.
Unless noted all my rough slabs are preformed with 180 or 325 diamond grit.
An 18 mm dime or 24mm quarter and 10 mm background squares in my pictures will help you with image sizing.
