~ Agua nueva agate cab ~

Offered here is a large, deluxe cabochon of agua nueva agate, which hails from Mexico. I often find that like this material even more than its long prized and famous cousin, Laguna agate, found nearby. This example features delightfully delicate pastel lavender coloration, showing tubes, fortification banding and some outragous bullseyes. At the large end is an area of sparkly crystalline quartz, for added character, and the entire stone is nicely translucent, as illustrated by the backlit photo. Simply GORGEOUS! The stone has a nicely rounded dome of 6+mm, a sweet designer drop shape, and a slick, glassy polish both front and back.

Size: 50x28mm
Weight: approximately 75 carats
