The Morrison Ranch is above the Owhyee Mountains of southeastern Oregon, in Malheur County near the Idaho border.
Carrasite Jasper is a nice porcelain gemstone jasper found in the same area as the famous Morrisonite Jasper and it looks very similar to it. Both make lovely designer cabochons.
Carrasite Jasper was found and therefore named for Charlie Carras who mined the site in the 1970’s. He worked the mine down about 10-15 feet. He and his brothers also had Morrisonite claims.
Steve Schultz of Silver Streams took over the claim in 1999 and he is currently working it about 65 feet deep.
Carrasite, like all jaspers, is said to help with relaxation and rejuvenation.
