Dragon Stone

Dragon stone is located on Kavir Downs Station, in the Abydos area, 35 kilometres east south-east of the Wodgina mining centre.

Known for very large boulders of massive, mid-green, chrome rich fuchsite chert. Marketed as 'dragon stone' or 'dragon's blood stone'. Hosted in an area of Archean schist and quartzite adjacent to an intrusion of metamorphosed ultramafic rock.

'Dragon stone' is largely microcrystalline quartz as chert, with minor muscovite and fuchsite. It has a mid-green cherty matrix, sometimes interspersed with fine red ferruginous rich bands and red blebs.
