Bull Canyon Turtleback Apple/Emerald wind slick
386 grams 13 ounces 8.6 cm x 7.8 cm x 5.2 cm 3.395in x 3.08in x 2.06
Amazing Wyoming nephrite jade wind slick of turtleback apple green/emerald. The turtleback refers to the pattern resulting from the complete replacement of nephrite jade in what was once a cluster of quartz crystals. The pattern is often most visible when cut, something you would NOT want to do with this specimen piece.
If you look closely at the photo you can see the geometric patterns of the replaced crystals in the nephrite jade.
This piece was found in the 1950’s in Bull Canyon by a rancher who lived in the Lander Wyoming area.
As rare a piece of nephrite jade one could ever hope to find in any Wyoming collection.
