Description
~ Pigeon blood agate cab ~

Offered here is a unique cabochon of pigeon blood agate, also known as cornelian, from Utah. This material is so named for its splashes or dots, which are crimson in color, resembling droplets of pigeon's blood, but this example features an unusual pattern of ribbons and moss. The red ribbons are seen on edge, along with several large and small red droplets, suspended in a highly translucent background, as illustrated by the backlit photo. The stone has a well rounded dome of 6mm, a designer 'crescent' shape, and a slick, glassy polish both front and back.

Size: 42x21mm
Weight: approximately 44 carats
