    Agate Slab
    Minas Gerais
    Brazil

    This large Agate slab is all natural. The thick variety of Quartz features bold banding along the polished surface making this a top example. The concentric bands include alternating shades of red, blue and yellow - all the primary colors. The colorful pattern is visible on both the polished display face as well as the smooth reverse. Light is visible through the specimen, and, when lit properly, these undulating bands light up. Additionally, this Brazilian export fluoresces neon green under short-wave ultraviolet light. The rim of the geode slab is quite sharp with jagged sections of rough Quartz and displays a brownish gray coloration. This sizable example of the beloved material is a great representation of the variety. Agate specimens, especially of this size, with such rich color are becoming harder to acquire.
