SiS: BREATHTAKING 12" Flawless Collector Grade Agate Slab - MY VERY BEST!

Regular price $110.00

Even if you thought you'd seen the best agate Brazil has to offer you owe it to yourself to see this one! This is one of the nicest agate slabs I've offered this year.  It represents the latest in a small handful of true collector grade agates we're pleased to be able to offer.  The wispy black bands in this stone are really dramatic, and all the more so because they appear to be formed like dendrites in some areas!  That sparkling drusy crystal center framed in countless tightly formed fortification bands is just as amazing!  The color and pattern change dramatically depending on light source, intensity and direction - it's pretty incredible backlit too!  And of course, we've polished this stone to shine that will embarrass any stone you put it next to!  Seriously - wait until you see it and you'll understand, I promise!! 

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 already slabbed but kept together as a set and I had the privilege of being one of the first buyers 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 dull polish applied before they were exported to produce a mirror finished, collector grade agate that only our shop can produce consistently.  It 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 and we've got the imitators to prove it! 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 and even those that boast high quality lapidary work on eBay can't match.

This exquisite agate slab is a beautifully shaped and intricately detailed specimen with unbelievably rich, completely natural colors in a completely flawless slab. This one competes with the finest collectible fortification agates found anywhere! There's an intensity to the colors in this stone that is unlike most Brazilian I've seen (it almost looks more like a cross between a Montana & Condor agate).

It measures about 11 3/4" across the mirror polished face and is cut approximately 0.22" thick.  Weight is 0.94 lbs. 

Stands sold separately.
