    Desert Sunset

 

 

Desert Sunset is a banded iron formation that is comprised of alternating layers of red and yellow jasper and chert with narrow bands of black hematite.

Banded iron formations occur in numerous locations throughout Western Australia displaying a wide range of colours.

This particular variety comes from near Fields Find, a small abandoned gold mining centre in the Midwest region of Western Australia.
