This very unique piece of Wyoming nephrite jade has isolated crystals, frogskin dots and white dot visible either on the rind or cut bottom. It’s a real looker, complete with it’s own cave. The rind and green frogskin specs and exposed areas on the surface point it’s origin to the Edwards claim area. I have seen and sold other pieces with similar features that had a known origin of the Edwards mine.
I did polish one small corner of the cut side to show it does take a good polish and will likely polish better on the round as I tried the best I could on 6″ gene wheels that are far from ideal on a piece this big. If you were looking at part of this piece for cutting material please be aware of the white and green spot scattered in the black. Pro or con, it’s all how ya look at it.
