A Fire Agate cabochon which exhibits brilliant colors of green, gold and some purple. The cabochon has been masterfully cut and polished to reveal the cells of color. This is a real art form because the agate needs to be polished to a depth deep enough to reveal the colors, but if polished down too far, the colors are lost. The polish on this specimen is excellent. Although Fire Agate can found across the southwestern United States and northern Mexico, Slaughterhouse Mountain is perhaps the most famous location and is noted for the brilliance of colors. The colors are caused by alternating layers of silica and iron oxide which causes light to diffract. This is older material and was polished by an older gentleman who was a demonstrator at one of our local shows.

Condition: Excellent

Flaws: Nothing Appreciable
