~ Botswana agate cab ~

Offered here is a dramatic cabochon of Botswana agate, from Africa. One of my long time favorite materials, I was delighted to have purchased a large cache of top notch slabs and rough in Tucson some years ago. This classic example was cut from the very heart of a prized nodule, and has countless beautiful fine line bands that show an amazing degree of parallax; the bands seem to wiggle open and closed as the stone is turned, though that's phenomenon is impossible to illustrate in photos. It's sure to look splendid in even the simplest of settings. The cab has a low rounded dome of 4mm, and a gracefully curved designer 'flame' shape, polished to a glassy brilliance both front and back.

Size: 41x17mm
Weight: approximately 23 carats
