Picasso Stone (sometimes called Picasso Jasper or Picasso Marble) is a type of limestone that has metamorphosed to a highly silicated stone which gives the stone the hardness of jasper, ranging from 5.5 to 6.5 on the Mohs scale. This precious stone has an unusual name, but its occurrence is unusual as well. In the middle of Utah near the town of Beaver, a singular location, David Penney found this boldly patterned gemstone and saw in its angular streaks, patches and markings, the brush stokes of the artist Pablo Picasso. It is unusual to pick a name for an artist's technique rather than what the stone is or who found it.
Picasso Stone began as did many marble varieties. Millions of years ago, when the Gulf of Mexico was an enormous inland sea, extending across Utah into Montana and east through Kansas, millions of tiny creatures living in the sea shed their shells. Eventually these shells become compresses by the pressures of the sediment and the calcium in their shells cemented into a solid layer of limestone. The heat of the tectonic plate movement and volcanic activity transformed the limestone into marble, in this case a beautiful and unique marble criss-crossed with a matrix of geometric black and tan lines. This unique geological story only occuued in one place on earth.
