"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.

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"
