Rock Creek Ocean Picture Jasper British Columbia
« on: July 06, 2020, 06:41:54 PM »


Comes from southern British Columbia. I really love the ocean scenes, like looking at a painting.

A mineralogical assemblage that results from the carbonatization of serpentinized ultramafic rocks and represents a distinctive alteration suite that is commonly associated with quartz-carbonate lode gold. or silica carbonate

I have seen and cut it for 40 years but just recently heard it is related to listwanites which you confirmed. It seems a bit different than the same rough 40 years ago , how varied is it now?

You got your good ocean scene, like turbulent water at the base of a cliff. 😺

To me it works great rotated 180 degrees. A cloudy sky over the desert...

There is likely no more access to site. It is a gold mine and they blew up a lot of rocks to get the gold. What I have is from an old collection.

Your choice - some like rocks, some like blue, it varies a lot. A lot has fractures from mining; pitting; softer brown matrix. Can't get a glassy polish in this material, more like satin. Did I mention it's my favourite!! :toothy10:

That works too!! I'm constantly second guessing "Is it a sea, or is it a sky"! Most of them can be turned either way and you can always choose your vista!

Just you try and turn this one upside down! lol
