My preformed rough slabs have all or most of the pits and open fractures removed and the front and back smoothed to produce a more acceptable slab for you to finish as a cab or specimen.
Craig Gulch Preformed rough slab
Approx size: 27 x 34 x 6 mm, Weight: 77.5 ct.
Characteristics: Natural rare picture jasper rough slab specimen or finish as a cabs, Preformed to make it easier to finish. No pits or fractures. Purchased many years ago in Arizona, haven't seen it since and only found one reference on the internet. In some slabs it sort of gives me the appearance of a Topo map.
When I bought the rough they told me the name and said it was extremely rare and found sometime back in the 70's. This will make a great addition to anyone's collection.
This slab is not like a normal rough slab, I've taken the time to remove all or most of the pits and fracture lines to produce a more acceptable slab for cabs or specimen. I used 180 or 325 diamond grit to sand the edges, and smooth the front and back to make it easier for you to finish.
Combining items with 2 or more listings. If they will fit in a standard bubble package and the weight is less than 4 ounces I will ship them with no extra charges.
I use a full spectrum 45 w light bulb - photography photo CFL 5500K. It's a daylight balanced pure white light.
First 4 pictures taken wet to bring out colors you may see after polishing. Remaining pictures taken dry to show imperfections if any. If it's transparent one picture is taken with back lighting.
Unless noted all my rough slabs are preformed with 180 or 325 diamond grit.
An 18 mm dime and 10 mm background squares in my pictures will help you with image sizing.
