Share Article

A gemstone cutter from Minneapolis was surprised to find an image of Christ in his latest work and is now offering the stone for sale on eBay.

Minneapolis based lapidary John Schmidt of Blue Heron Gem recently discovered a miracle in stone.

A nodule of high-grade Morrisonite Jasper was cut and revealed a stunning, realistic image of Christ and the Cross. In addition, other faces can be seen in the surrounding pattern. This image was painstakingly cut into a gemstone in cabochon form and is currently being offered on eBay.

Lapidary John Schmidt, the cutter of the stone, said: "I immediately realized the unprecedented value and collectibility of the gemstone. I used state of the art diamond tools to cut and polish the gemstone to its maximum brilliance. Morrisonite, also called the 'King of Jaspers,' often displays interesting patterns; however, I have never seen anything quite like this and certainly never will again. Gem cutters everywhere can only dream of having such incredible luck."

The auction ends Sunday 10/2/2005 at 9:54 pm CDT and the gemstone can be viewed at the following link:
