Description
~ Feather Ridge plume agate cab ~

Offered here is a cabochon cut from Feather Ridge plume agate, which hails from Oregon. This example boasts a delightful array of plume figures in shades of pink, pastel peach and golden yellow, with creamy white, suspended in a very translucent background, which displays them to the fullest. Among the impressive plumage, there are a couple of small botryoidal vugs, the larger vug lined with deep carnelian, adding character. The coloration is strongly reminiscent of grand old regency rose plume agate from Graveyard Point, which I read is only about 10 miles away, comparing very well to the best I've seen in many years. This outstanding plume agate ought to look splendid set in silver, but I think the contrasting richness of gold would be especially tasty. Try it, you'll love it! This cab has a nicely rounded dome of 5+mm, a graceful designer 'flame' shape, and a fine glassy polish both front and back.

Size: 50x28mm
Weight: approximately 50 carats

Price: $62.00
