Hart Mountain Rough

Hart Mountain Jasper is found in Southeastern Oregon and is known as the original "porclean jasper". You need to be part mountain-goat to find this jasper as it occurs above the 7,000ft elevation mark on Hart Mountain.

Linited amounts of rough is available here for $28/oz.

Update!! August 13th 2003

At the Lakeview show on August 11th 2002 a collection of 78 pieces of sizes from a large marble to the size of your fist sold for $21,000!!!! The locals who hunt Hart Mountain regularly are searching at the 9000 foot mark and are collecting very little material. Three individuals who sell the material have now gone to a minimum $35/oz wholesale and I fear the price is headed up again. It looks like this is another material on the "endangered species" list.
