This is a very unusually pretty piece of Biggs Picture Jasper. This stone has been pretty hard to find for a good while...it has actually been mined out. I wrapped it with woven sterling wire and it hangs from a lovely sterling chain. The pendant, including the bail is 2.5 x 1.5" and the chain is 18" with a 2" extender. You will love this little piece as it looks like a sunset over the hills.
From and Admirer who saw this piece and sent me this story about Biggs Jasper, and her name is Carol: "Biggs jasper is a vary rare stone..........the story is that road workers in the Biggs, OR found it when they were grading a new road. The road was eventually built, of course, and so whatever was still available has been paved under. There a was of a small amount of the Biggs brown found later, but that is gone as well. The gorgeous Biggs blue was found on that roadway and is all paved under. Just a story to accompany your lovely pendant. "
