    The thing about the Tucson gem fair is that you see things you won't see elsewhere (or maybe ever gain). Someone discovers a new gemstone and a few years later, the seam runs out.

It's not a Turquoise, so I'm going with Wild Horse Jasper, because it comes only from the Globe Mine in Gila, Arizona, an area that claims to have those dappled pinto wild...
    The thing about the Tucson gem fair is that you see things you won't see elsewhere (or maybe ever gain). Someone discovers a new gemstone and a few years later, the seam runs out. So wandering around, I saw this. It is variously described as White Turquoise, Wild Horse Jasper, Crazy Horse Jasper or a form of Owyhee Jasper. It's not a Turquoise, so I'm going with Wild Horse Jasper, because it comes only from the Globe Mine in Gila, Arizona, an area that claims to have those dappled pinto wild horses. It seems to be a mixture of Haematite, Magnetite and white Jasper. Anyhow, the point is, it's pretty rare, looks fantastic as a necklace, each 18mm bead a world of complexity and detail. Out of plain curiosity and an inclination to like unusual stones, I bought enough beads to make two fine 44cm necklaces with gilded sterling silver magnetic clasps. Will you ever meet anyone else wearing Wild Horse Jasper? Almost certainly not unless you are heading to Gila, Arizona (and trust me, there's not much to see). I always think rarity and uniqueness has a value all of its own.
