Wyoming black frogskin nephrite jade river cobble from the N. Platte River
5.3oz 152g – 3.5″ x 1.5″ x 1″
Here’s a special frogskin river cobble from the N. Platte River that just oozes character and curvaceous lines. The green bumps create a unique contrast which ever way you hold it. Carve a wooden base and it would make a delightful suiseki. Frogskin pieces like this are very rare these days.
This beautiful, naturally worn river cobble was originally collected by a family in Douglas, Wyoming with permission from the local ranchers to jade hunt along the riverbanks of the North Platte River in the Guernsey, Wyoming vicinity. I purchased this piece directly from that family about 8 years ago. The origin of this piece is likely either the black jade veins near Douglas or the Edwards black claim which was located above the confluence of the Sweetwater and N. Platte Rivers. These river cobbles are becoming quite rare.
