Agree on the Apache.  Is the Jasper from the town in Wyoming?

I love your stones - nice work and composition.  However, I hate your noisy background - it detracts from your work.  Why not consider a nice uniform grey or green depending on the stone.  Just saying.

Love that scenic rhyolite. To me it looks like the picasso isn't in focus, but the other three look great!

I rock hunt in the Antelope/Ashwood area of the John Day river basin in Oregon. 90% of what I post is from this area, from private property where I have permission to hike and collect. The material I find is for personal use only, I do not have landowner permission to sell. Thanks for understanding!

Thanks for the comments.  The Lysite bamboo jasper I found as float north of the town of Lysite off the road over Cotton Wood Pass. I picked the background for the photos because it seems to give me the best color reproduction with my I-Phone.

Very odd that anything like that Bamboo would be found in Wyoming. It looks exactly like the Bamboo material coming from China for the last 10 years.

Here are a couple of slabs that differ greatly from the Chinese material all from the same location.

Yowza. That's some nice material. I hadn't seen that bamboo out of Wyoming before.

Also, as others have said, the apache rhyolite cab is drool-worthy!
