Turkish Stick Agate Gemstone Cabochon Hand Crafted By LEXX STONES 47 Carats

$85.00

 

Here for your consideration is a superbly banded Turkish Stick Agate cabochon. This striking cabochon exhibits colorful sticks and reeds protruding from different angles. Often accompanied by a pseudomorph, our resident mineralogist has theorized these fortifications are Quartz-Agate pseudomorph after Anhydrite as observed through infrared microscopy/spectroscopy. The "sticks" appear to be a square reed of unkown genus. I say it's friggin' cool!!!  High quality pseudomorphs and stick agates are highly prized due to their rarity. Turkish geologists believe Agates from Çubuk are "Thunderegg" core remains after the rind has been eroded away. These cores are found deep in clay resulting from decomposed rhyolitic lava. Vitreous polish front and back. Standard radius dome. Hand selectd, cut and polished by yours truly.

This cabochon would make a beautiful pendant, either wire wrapped, bezel set , PMC or a dandy collectors piece. Use your imagination!

This fine Lexx Stones cabochon is untreated and natural.
