Looking for thin Jasper slabs
« on: December 05, 2017, 06:01:48 AM »

Wondering if anyone might have any thin slabs of Jasper. 1" x 1.5" minimum, 1.5 - 3mm thick preferred. Please let me know. Thanks!

Looking for interesting slabs, either like Picture Jasper or a colorful jasper that has few fractures. I am looking to make guitar picks so anything that has a unique feature or good color would be perfect.

I saw some of your slabs and your Red Jasper Agate and Toucan Roadkill look interesting.

My biggest challenge is to find a jasper that will have minimal fracturing. I've had good luck with blood jasper (I have a stock of Blood jasper) but I really would like to find some different colors.

Also looking for Coprolite or dino bone fossil.

Please let me know if you still have some of that still left and let's work out a deal!

That is so kind of you! Awesome! I would love to make some picks from your material. Anything that you would send will be appreciated and transformed into picks. What a great story this will make for whoever gets them!

Thank you!

I used to make agate and jasper guitar picks, shaped like the regular ones, and they were very popular.  I sold at art fairs and hundreds to a guitar store.
