~ Feather Ridge plume agate cab ~

Offered here is a cabochon cut from Feather Ridge plume agate, which was recently mined in Oregon. This beautifully busy stone has a fabulous display of plume figures in attractive shades of rose, pink, pastel peach, and butterscotch suspended in a very translucent background. Among the plumes, there are a couple of tiny botryoidal vugs and glints of sparkle adding earthy 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. And it cut like a dream to boot! This Feather Ridge 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 6mm, a designer 'teardrop' shape, and a fine glassy polish both front and back.

Size: 59x19mm
Weight: approximately 40 carats
