DescriptionPURPLE LUNA AGATE SLAB
Luna Agate got it's name because the orbicular patterning of the Agate reminded people of lunar craters, and at the time of its discovery lunar exploration was in the news, so the name stuck. In addition to the patterning, the Agate is renown for its strong, natural purple coloration. This large Luna Agate slab not only has very strong patterning and intense deep purple coloration, it is extremely translucent - some would describe it as gel agate. As an added bonus there are also areas of druzy quartz for added sparkle.
Overall measurements: 12.5 x 8.5 x .25 inches (31.8 x 21.6 x .6 cm).
