Caldera Paint Jasper


Caldera Paint Jasper is another great find from the McDermitt area on the Oregon side of the border. Gary Green jasper was originally found in this area by Gary McIntosh and Ray Larson, but later Caldera Paint jasper was discovered. It went unnamed and was ignored at the time because everyone was after the Gary Green.

By the 1960’s Reggie Kemp starting digging the Caldera Paint jasper. Because it was mostly surface material, and the focus was still very much after the green, it was set aside for another day.

In the spring of 2018, on land now owned by Dale Huett, Reggie and Aaron Buell started excavating a newer batch of the Caldera Paint, at a much greater depth of about 16 feet, which yielded a more solid, pit-free material that was far more worthy for lapidary use.
