10.4" Polished Kambaba Jasper Freeform - Madagascar
This is a spectacular, hand polished freeform made from Kambaba Jasper found in Madagascar. It is 10.4" tall and has dark circular mineral formations throughout the jasper. The base has been cut flat so that it displays nicely on a hard surface and would be suitable as either an indoor or outdoor decorative piece.
Kambaba jasper is mined in the desert regions of Madagascar. It's believed by many that this form of jasper is stromatolitic, meaning it would be a fossilization of billion year old algae. However, this has been disproven by the same experts who also concluded that the mineral conglomeration technically isn't a jasper. It is composed mainly of quartz, pyroxene and round formations of alkali feldspar. But for the sake of identity purposes, it's still commonly referred to as "jasper".
