Rain-forest jasper or Rain-forest Rhyolite is a volcanic rock composed primarily of quartz and other minerals to give it its color. The name Rain-forest jasper was derived from the impressionistic patterns resembling the foliage within a rainforest. Rain-forest Rhyolite has been very hard to find commercially. It was mined exclusively in Queensland, Australia. There is some suspicion that the deposit has been mined out.

This specimen has one major orb with a chalcedony center and an adjacent smaller light tangerine colored orb. The remainder of the specimen is a mixture of forest green and a muted lime green.

The stone is polished to a high luster both front and back. The back is flat ready for mounting.

Photographed under full spectrum LEDs.
