Rainforest Rhyolite is a rare type of rhyolitic lava. Gas bubbles are trapped in the lava flow which are later filled with agate, jasper and quartz, giving birth to this unique semi-precious stone.
Also known as Rainforest Jasper, Agatised Rhyolite and Spherulitic Rhyolite, it comes only from Queensland, Australia.
This material is great for lapidary purposes, with its variety of colour and patterns. It is quite a hard stone and polishes to a beautiful glassy finish.
This material is natural, untreated stone suitable for display or lapidary purposes.
These slabs are not polished and are straight off the saw and washed.
Photos are taken wet so to indicate the colour and pattern of the stone after it has been polished. No filters or photo editing has been undertaken to enhance colouration.
Slab measurements are approximate. When we measure a stone, we don’t measure from it’s extreme pointy little tips. We measure the usable body of the stone for lapidary purposes. When you receive your slab, it will be bigger than the description by 5-15mm.
