~ Pigeon blood agate cab ~

Offered here is a cabochon of classic 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. This extra gemmy example features a variety of spots of all sizes suspended a in highly translucent background, as illustrated by the backlit photo. There is also a splendid showing of tiny "olive" inclusions, that only the top notch agates have. The stone has a well rounded dome just a hair shy of 7mm, a gracefully fluid designer 'flame' shape, and a slick, glassy polish both front and back.

Weight: approximately 43 carats
