Imperial live edge piece
« on: April 07, 2019, 02:29:05 PM »

This is the first slab off of a nodule I got at a show last summer.
59x31x7  3mm bore.
The rind reminds me of fossil ivory.

That does look like fossil ivory. I can't recall seeing a natural-edge piece of Imperial jasper before - looks very nice!

Very nice and agree it looks like fossil ivory.  I like the natural edge.  Makes it look "rustic".
