Rhyolite Rainforest Jasper Slice
Rhyolite Rainforest Jasper Slice from Australia, weight 32g | 7x5x0.5cm approx.
Rhyolite was named "streaming rock" because of its beautiful bands, bubbles and crystal-rich layers that form as lava flows onto the surface of stone and moves forward. Rhyolite can look very different, depending on how it erupts. Rhyolite has a composition similar to granite but has a smaller grain size. It is composed of the light-coloured silicates and is usually buff to pink in colour. Because of its varied formational traits it represents change, variety and progress. It sparks creativity in individuals who are ready to move forward and make things happen in their life. It allows us to reach out and beyond our capabilities of what we think we can achieve by helping us to break through the mental barriers and to reach a profound and joyous state of knowing.
Rhyolite shows us how to relish in the vast potential within ourselves. This is a stone used for meditation, progression in life, focusing on the present moment and resolving issues not yet complete.
This piece had a lacquered finish on one side.
