AGATE CREEK DESIGNER CABOCHON (Australia) – 17.61 ct.
The superb and colorful agates from Queensland’s Agate Creek in Australia are world famous. This butterscotch-hued designer cut displays what agate aficionados call a “water level” pattern. The straight parallel lines in the stone are the result of gravity. When the agate was formed, silica-rich water entered the cavity where it developed and left small amounts of silica to form each separate band. Weight: approx. 17.61 ct. Measurements: approx. 30.74 x 21.94 x 4 mm. (All uses, N)
