Just received Sea sediment Jasper heart...pretty. Feels like a rock but too many straight angles in inclusions. Looks like a man made conglommerate to me. Very pretty though!

Do you have a pic of your "real thing"...the one you saw in the rough? Guess you just make up big chunks of it and then slice and cut n polish. Looks nothing resembling Mooakite.

I bought some of the "jasper sea sediment " although I think it quite colorful and pretty it's not real. It feels like resin. So I used a file on it and it is extremely soft so I would say it's some sort of pieces of dyed stone in a resin with metals added. Idk. Educated guess.
