Genesis Stone / Banded Iron
Genesis Stone / Banded Iron is a sedimentary stone made of alternating layers of jasper and hematite or magnetite. It was formed 1.8 – 2.4 billion years ago in the ancient iron seas. These pieces were broken off from the main formation by an unknown event and left to weather on the Wyoming plains. Each of these naturally polished specimens likely spent tens of millions, if not hundreds of millions of years being carved by wind, water and grains of sands.
Every unique piece has seen an almost unimaginable amount of sunrises and sunsets out on the windswept plains of Wyoming, USA creating the unique polished desert patina on these stones.
