Jade

I picked this up a few years ago when I was driving through Quartzsite at the rock shop
It came out of the Wyoming jade pile.

Wyoming jade is so very different in origin. It is found in igneous deposits  and can be very confusing in looks.Interesting piece.

I have not seen this type of Jade before with so many speckles, it almost looks like a green granite.  The polish looks very good and it looks like it is a healthy sized sphere to boot.
