Description
~ Palm agate cab ~

Offered here is a cabochon of palm agate, from Indonesia. This material is a brand new acquisition to my studio, one that I searched for a good long time. I finally purchased several kilos direct from the miner overseas, and I must say it was well worth seeking out and waiting for! This new petrified palm agate has fantastically wild figure, and the colors are amazing. This example has a plethora of bullseyes, some with fortified centers full of tiny eyes, and most are edged or highlighted in blood red. The body of the stone is golden yellow, with undertones of olive here and there. Absolutely gorgeous, the patterns seem to indicate that this was once part of the roots of a living palm tree, but I'm no expert and could be mistaken. I do believe this fabulous new palm agate has tremendous designer potential; grab this one if you think so, too! The cab has a high rounded dome of 7.5mm, a gracefully curved designer 'flame' shape, and a slick, glassy polish both front and back.

Size: 51x24mm
Weight: approximately 57 carats
