This pair features fantastic color and only the very slightest of crack near the bottom, this is uncommon for material from this location. Agate Creek is recognized world wide as a source of outstanding agate specimens.The elongated  transparent quartz core forms  a striking, contrasting colors of the outer agate, making this a fine piece. There is some chatoyancy present (winking). I have to say that after photographing this specimen the resin bond between the pair parted, so its not two individual piece, this could easily be fixed if one desired, with some resin, or gap filler, etc. Im sorry but I have no idea what the green mineral is at the base of the pair, thou it is softer than the agate.
