California

FJD California 4. Palm Springs Museum Specimen. Specimen round log end from a rarely seen locality, Palm Springs, California. I’ve had this for several decades. I expect it was collected a great many years ago. It has melted cell structures – glassy and translucent with deep lovely colors of yellow, red, and blue. The exterior is nicely patinaed and screams – desert found. 43 by 67 mm mirror-polished domed face; 9.5 cm thick; twelve ounces.  $100
