Puddingstone Slab from Michigan


A loaded Puddingstone slab from Michigan. Puddingstone is the name given to this Jasper conglomerate. This slab was cut from a very large rock in my lapidary workshop. It consists of Red Jasper, black chert and white and semi transparent quartzite. Puddingstone was brought down to Michigan from Northern Ontario with the continental ice sheets and spread throughout the state. Pudding stone is used to make jewelry, nightlight, coasters and various crafts.  Width is  6 1/4″.  Height is 4″.  Thickness is 1/4″.  Weight is 8.1 oz.  (E) Photo was taken in natural sunlight.
