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.

With a little bit of imagination, you can see a lot in this specimen. It all depends on the orientation of the stone; birds, native dancers, village on a mountain to name a few.

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

Photographed under full spectrum LEDs.
