Description
Cross-section of a pink/grey coloured rock that has been polished smooth.Tony L'Orsa, local geologist, examined this rock in July 2018 and concluded that it was likely a "spherulitic felsic volcanic rock; probably a rhyolite." Tony thinks that the item is likely an import and not from the Smithers area. He notes that these types of rock are popular among collectors.
Narrative
Full quote from Tony (see e-mail in July 2018 to info@bvmuseum): "Rocks of this group are popular with collectors who use many different and misleading names, including orbicular jasper and ocean jasper. As far as I know, this rock type has not been reported from our area and I think it’s an import."
