~ Queensland agate cab ~

Offered here is a cabochon of Queensland shadow agate, which was "fossicked" years ago at Australia's famous Agate Creek agate beds. This example features an outstanding fortification composed of countless fine bands that show a great degree of parallax. The color is an oddly muted shade of yellow, with olive green overtones. Lighter, more pastel shades towards the central snow-white core. I'm told these very sought after Down Under agates get their coloration from the presence of iron, which sets them apart from many of their plainer cousins. It has a nicely rounded dome of 5mm, a graceful designer teardrop shape, and a slick glassy polish both front and back.

Size: 38x19mm
Weight: approximately 29 carats
