COLLECTOR GRADE 7" Agate Slab - Beautifully Translucent Stone With Mirror Polish!

Regular price $60.00

I know the word "perfect" gets WAY overused these days, but it really is the only way to describe this amazing slab. Every detail from the shape, finish and color is truly flawless and amazingly created. Even if you thought you'd seen the best agate Brazil has to offer you owe it to yourself to see this one! This exceptional slab is one of those rare high grade specimens that is both flawless and uniquely colored! In this case the stone has a color best described as smoky when front lit and the translucent shade forms the anchor in a gorgeous series of beautifully arranged, wispy fortification bands. When you combine the natural beauty of this exceptional example with our mirror polish lapidary work crafted from a flawless agate it virtually guarantees that it will be a showpiece! When backlit the stone is a golden amber color with even more bands visible. There is a small satellite drusy crystal cavity in the corner as well! The polish we've achieved on the display face of this stone is a significant step above the imported finish these stones are usually marketed with.

I've always been a fan of the top grade fortification agates that are found in Brazil. There are several varieties, many representing the finest, largest agates found anywhere on the planet. The best grades have sharp, naturally colorful fortification bands with no fractures whatsoever in the translucent agate. Last year in Tucson I found an importer that had brought in a few dozen choice agates and I had the privilege of being one of the first customer to go through them. What I selected were the cleanest, most detailed, most colorful slabs that I knew would be the best many collectors would ever get to see. I brought them back to my shop and reworked the typical dull polish applied before they were exported to produce a mirror finished, collector grade agate that deserves a place in a serious rock collection. I couldn't believe the selection of agates that I was able to obtain - many will be staying in my own growing collection, but this exceptional stone is yours if you come out on top!

If you haven't seen our lapidary work before, you're missing one of the best treats on eBay! We've built our own specially designed laps to produce mirror finishes on high grade agates, jaspers and petrified wood. The work we do really sets us apart from pack. I treat every stone as if it were going in my own collection and you better believe, I'M PICKY!! Brazilian agate makes a particularly fine medium for us to show our work off on because it's so hard and fracture free. It takes an unbelievable polish that most rock collectors rarely get to see when shopping in retail stores and rock shows.

This exquisite agate slab is a beautifully shaped and intricately detailed specimen with unbelievably rich, completely natural colors. This one competes with the finest collectible fortification agates found anywhere!

It measures about 6 3/4" across the mirror polished face and is cut approximately 0.24" thick.
