Here is a really nice scenic cabochon of Agua Nueva Agate from Mexico. It is a flat cabochon but at 7mm thick it would make a nice hammer bezel set piece of jewelry in my opinion. The piece is polished on both sides with only one side showing any real color or pattern. The piece has excellent contrast and color and will make a really nice piece of jewelry.
Make sure to click on the “Additional Information” tab to see size and girdle height.
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.
