October 2014 Program

”Mother Nature's Watercolors - Deer Sky Jasper and other Picture Jaspers of Eastern Oregon" was presented by Club Member, Jack Glenn.

In addition to a color slide presentation, Jack had numerous samples of the raw material for all to see.

There are at least 75 named varieties of picture jasper. Deer Sky was named because of the unique color and pattern by the man who found the material.

The location is still held confidential but Jack was able to obtain several photos not previously seen. The location is a very small hand-dug mine located on a private ranch.

Thanks, Jack, as you piqued our interest in this new material.
