AGATE – AGATE CREEK – WITH CHATOYANCY

$42.00

For sale is a nice agate specimen from Agate Creek, Nth Qld. This agate, which has a really fine polish, ranges in color from red to orange, yellow to yellow with a green tinge. The amazingly fine banding and some degree of translucency, give the piece, great chatoyancy (winking) in many areas, as the specimen is turned.  This special effect is not particularly common with Agate Creek specimens, I would say probably one or two in a hundred specimens.

What the dark brownish inclusion is near the bottom of the specimen, I have no idea, all I can say is that is is an internal feature, that came when the agate was formed. Quite special!
