Description

This proud gem is a piece of Botswana agate. Botswana agate is prized for its purplish gray overtones and profusion of concentric bands. It's getting harder to come by these days and the prices are unfortunately going up. This was my first time getting to work with the material and I immediately saw why it's so popular. The fine translucent bands running through the transparent host chalcedony give the look of the delicate gills beneath a mushroom's cap.

This stone has varying tones of light and dark gray with a warm brownish gray 'eye' at the base. The stone was cut with a "knife edge" ridge running from the point and dissipating at the gentle slope to the flat base. The stone is quite large at 30.22ct and measuring 24 x 26mm and 8mm tall. Botswana agate is a very tough stone and takes quite a high polish. The back of the stone is beveled and polished.

All my stones are hand-cut by me, and the stone you are buying is always the stone pictured. Please see my shop policies for more information, or feel free to contact me with your questions and feedback.

Thanks for looking and have a wonderful day!

Phil was an absolute pleasure to work with, very courteous and very prompt in responding to any questions I had. All told, I think from quote request to the time I received my stone was about 3 or 4 weeks.

I requested a bright pink lab created sapphire in the 8mm to 9.5mm range. What I received was nothing short of a hot pink sparkle bomb. Do not let my photo fool you- I am no photographer. The stone is a beautiful light bubble gum shade that absolutely GLOWS. The facets are crisp and pronounced and throws gorgeous pink beams of light.

I am extremely happy with my purchase and would definitely buy from Phil again!

Looks Great! Phil was also excellent to work with. He was able to make a custom cut that I had found on my own and produced the stone in a timely manner. He also responded swiftly to an excessive number of questions over a few weeks before I even committed to purchasing a stone. He did so patiently and in a friendly way. I rarely leave reviews, but this service and product is unbelievable. Well Done!
