This is a nice large and thick piece of deep purple Agua Neuva Agate from Mexico. It has great color that is actually quite transparent. Please note the brown areas are soft and undercut so there is some pitting in those areas. But the piece is polished on all sides and a very nice piece at a great price.
Visit my Sold cabochon Gallery to see past opals I have cut. You will find other examples of materials, shapes, sizes, colors, and in general see my work there. Some stones date back over 15 years in there. I don’t show everything I cut, just the ones I really liked over the years. Please let me know if you have any questions about those materials.
Its also important to visit your local rockclub if you have one near by. Its a
great place to start if you are new to gems and minerals. Thank you.
