~ Black River agate cab ~

Offered here is a superbly dramatic cabochon of Black River agate, a more recent find that hails from Argentina. This gorgeous shadow agate came from the very first nodule I sliced. It boasts a plethora of super fine fortification bandings showing crazy parallax effect, ie. the bands seem to wiggle open and closed as the stones is moved. It also has excellent contrast, reminding me of some Lake Superior agates I have known and loved, but with an oddly attractive greenish-yellow undertone. Truly a keeper! The cab has a low rounded dome, and it is polished to a glassy brilliance both front and back.

Size: 42x22mm
Weight: approximately 44 carats
