Lori Braun clearly selected the Sonoran dendritic jasper for it's landscape which resembles a maroon fall lake side scene.

According to The Gem Shop, Inc. in Cedarburg, WI, "In 2009, a man was chasing one of his goats up a mountain slope a few kilometers from the pueblo where he lived. He stumbled over some rock that he thought looked unusually pretty and picked some up. In 2011 some of this rock was offered for sale at the Tucson and Quartzsite Show in Arizona. It was well received with beautiful, feather-like dendritic patterns on different colored backgrounds.

The rock is simply called Sonora Dendritic because of the strong dendritic patterns and is found in the state of Sonora, Mexico. The state of Sonora is directly south of Arizona and California.

There are no roads to the deposit. We drove on dirt roads to a river, drove through the river and up a creek bed on the other side of the river. When we could not drive any farther (low-range 4-wheel drive country) we started walking, following a burro trail up the cliffs to the mountain slopes."
