~ Carnelian agate cab ~

Offered here is a cabochon of Oregon carnelian agate. This example has juicy translucent reddish orange coloration, with an interesting display of the 'cornflakes' so sought after by collectors. I tried my best to capture the beautiful 'flakes inside this stone, but saturated color tends to wash out such details. The stone is beautifully translucent, as illustrated by the backlit photo. Carnelian with this rich coloration is none too easy to come by, as most have color only on the outside of the rough pieces, in a thin layer of rind. Not this one; its natural, vibrant hues are through and through. The cab has a rounded dome of 4.5mm, a designer teardrop shape, and despite a couple teensy pinpoint voids, it has an excellent glassy polish both front and back.

Size: 44x18mm
Weight: approximately 30 carats
