SPECTACULAR 18" Agate Geode Display Slab - Gorgeous TURTLE BACK Agate Slab!

Regular price $170.00

This is a particularly large and show agate slab from Brazil that we've polished in our shop. It's a beautifully colored and spectacularly patterned agate that really lets us show off our unmatched stone finishes! It's a particularly nice, extra large specimen cut from the center of highly translucent, giant sized nodule from the whiteskin deposit in Brazil. I obtained this stone through an estate collection and reworked the finish in our shop to produce a truly gorgeous collector piece and an amazing work of natural art. The sparkling drusy crystals in the center of this highly translucent slab are very clean and really give this gorgeous stone life. You should expect the colors in this translucent agate to vary considerably depending on which sort of lighting you view it in and whether it is from the front or back. The backlit view reveals countless fortification bands in a gorgeous amber colored agate that is really beautiful and very strong in this slab. The 100% natural colors in this gem grade agate are truly beautiful in any light conditions. It has been polished to perfection on our custom built equipment to produce the kind of mirror finish that only our shop delivers on each stone we sell - enjoy!

This is a huge slab of nicely patterned fortification agate that I recently polished. It's cut from an enormous & classic Brazilian agate nodule from Brazil. I refinished and mirror polished the display face to reveal the subtle agate colors and show off our polishing skills which really stand out in this almost flawless agate. I guarantee you'll be amazed at how perfectly wet looking the surface of this stone is. Few lapidaries are able to come close to the work we produce and that means most collectors never get to see true collector quality finishes. Toss out the winning bid on this piece and I'm confident you'll become one of our many repeat customers! This piece comes to life with a wet looking, deep, lustrous finish that lets you see deep into the stone and makes your eyes wonder just where the surface begins!

This stone has been polished in our shop to produce a quality finished product that is guaranteed to put the stuff you see in the retail shops to shame. As a dedicated (obsessive?) hobbyist, I've spent years perfecting my lapidary technique to produce mirror perfect finishes that look wet to the touch. You simply won't believe how good our polish is until you see it yourself! I've designed and built special laps that produce one of the finest, glossiest, flattest finishes to really show off the beauty of these natural treasures.

This agate is quite substantial and represents a classic turtle back in an exceptionally large size. It measures about 17 1/2" x 7 1/2" on the polished face, is cut about 0.32" thick and weighs 2.62 lbs.
