AGATES 3

 
 
 

Condor 322, the other half of Condor 308. Museum specimen from my collection. Half nodule with a great size and shape for a cabinet piece. I don’t know how you could top the color on this one, although I admit I am partial to this color scheme. The orange spots around the edge are nice accents to a fabulous design.  8.5 by 5 cm mirror-polished face; 2.7 cm thick; six ounces.  $660

 
 

Condor 306. Museum specimen. Half nodule. Nice cabinet size with deep rich colors. Crystal-lined vug, perfect condition.  8 by 6 cm mirror-polished face; 4 cm thick; eight point five ounces.  $525

 
 

Condor 308. Museum specimen. Half nodule with a great size and shape for a cabinet piece. I don’t know how you could top the color on this one, although I admit I am partial to this color scheme. The orange spots around the edge are nice accents to a fabulous design.  9 by 5.5 cm mirror-polished face; 3.5 cm thick; seven ounces.  $660

Condor 332. Museum specimen. Half nodule with an excellent size and shape for a cabinet piece. Solid and perfect with alternating bands of color and a perfect “moon rock” exterior. 68 by 38 cm mirror-polished face; 53 mm thick; six ounces.  $100

Floy Wash Agate 2. This specimen came from the collection of an Old West rockhounding couple who roamed the wilds of Colorado, Wyoming, and Utah in search of petrified wood and agate beginning in the 1930s. It has gemmy translucence and is probably best called jasp-agate as it has qualities of both jasper and agate. It’s quite glassy and has textures like you see in petrified wood. This is a hunk that was cut in half and beautifully polished. 11.5 by 7 cm mirror-polished face; up to 9 cm thick; two pounds.  $45
