Help identifying this green rock

Recommended Posts

Hard to tell from photos alone, but I’m going to guess it’s jasper.

It resembles some photographs of WA state Nephrite jade which is found in various colors of blue/green . . .

It is an attractive rock, colors are great. Could certainly be either Nephrite or Jasper though I would lean towards Nephrite based on the photos.

I would not rule out green Microcline as a possibility.  The last photo shows nice "twinning" of minerals, a major characteristic of microcline.  There also appears to be some cleavage showing in the other photos.  This is a very attractive mineral.  Nice find!
