A extra large round shaped semi precious gemstone brown Blue Biggs Jasper collector designer cabochon 63 mm (2.5 inches!) in diameter by 4 mm thick.
Biggs jasper was first found around 1960 at the bottom of a creek near Biggs Junction, Oregon, after possibly being carried there by water. More of the stone was discovered in 1966 when U.S. Route 97 was relocated through a canyon south of Biggs Junction.
Similar to the brown Deschutes Jasper, Blue Biggs Jasper has a distinct blueish tinge to it.
It is formed as mud from volcanic ash was deposited in basalt and then heated and compressed through volcanic activity.
This material in this lovely cabochon is from Fred Dormeir's claim a hundred yards from the original Blue Biggs claim.
Blue Biggs Jasper has a hardness of about 7 on the Moh's scale.
