Gary Green Jasper 2
This is a Gary Green Jasper pendant measuring about 2 3/4" in length and ~1" at the lower end. The stone is also called Larsonite after Raymond Larson. It is a petrified bogwood or swamp bog where the wood, canes, and cat tails and creatures living in the bog are all petrified in a Miocene age volcanic event between 11 and 14 million years ago. It is a snapshot in time of the algae , fallen trees, vegetation, and various swamp critters that were present when the bog was covered by fallen ash.
