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.

The face of this specimen has a dark purple agate surrounded by lavender bands. The remainder of the stone has various shades of greens and pale yellows.

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

Photographed under full spectrum LEDs.
