    Description

    Agate Slab
    Brazil

    Another wonderful Agate slice polished on both sides, this amazing specimen has several noteworthy attributes. It is large and thick with a sloping tan rim indicating it was cut from a round piece of rough material. The colors are excellent with a blend of dark blue and black in a stormy and intense pattern. There is a light colored cavity and a hollow space partially filled with crystalline Quartz "teeth" around the periphery. This piece is big enough to be a statement piece and bold enough to, actually, make one.
    Overall Measurements: 21.26 x 19.49 x 0.59 inches (54.00 x 49.50 x 1.50 cm)

    [Scale: 1 inch, with mark at 1 cm]


    Estimate: $2,000 - $3,000.
