Crocodile Jasper

Name:
The name "crocodile jasper" is said to refer to the stone's resemblance to amphibian eyes.
It is also known as Kabamba Jasper or aka Kabamba Jasper.
A tradename for a greenish colored volcanic rhyolite rock quarried by Norcross- Madagascar in a 6 km2 large area in Madagascar (probably in the Tsiroanomandidy area, but this is not been verified).

It is commonly, though erronously, sold as jasper or as a stromatolitic rock, which it is not.

The EPI-Institute in Germany has studied the rock by thin section and XRD. The greenish colored rock consist of the minerals quartz, pyroxene (aegirine), albite, and K feldspar. The characteristic, blackish, rounded aggregates consist of needles of amphiboles (riebeckite to paragasite in composition).
