Here is a really nice flat cabochon of Polmosa Plume agate from Arizona. Originally collected near Quartzsite this material came in large rough pieces and it got bought up pretty fast back before the 2008 bubble. I never see rough of it for sale anymore but I plan to have a number of cabochons of it like this one. The photos just don’t show the plume detail in this piece like I hoped it would. Polished on both sides.
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.
