Description

    "CONDOR" AGATE NODULE
    Province, Patagonia, Argentina
    This colorful nodule comes from a 6,000-foot high plateau in Patagonia, Argentina. First discovered in 1992, this remote and forbidding region of Argentina has yielded some of the world's finest and most colorful Agates: Condor Agates; named in honor of the famous bird of the Andes. The Agate's concentric rings of bright reds, deep oranges and mustard yellows are made even more vivid by contrasting bands of cooler, more-subtle hues of lavender, salmon pink and pure white. With a mirror-bright polish, this nodule weighs 562 grams, measures 4 ½ x 3 ¼ x 2 ½ inches and is in fine condition.
