Laguna Agate Cabochon

This free form cabochon measures 33mm x 28mm x 5mm; weighs 5.8 grams

Beautiful cut and polished Laguna Agate. The material is a well known Agate out of Mexico. It has been known as Agua Nueva Agate, though the colors are typically the same with the beautiful banding of the agate . In this case light tan through reds and lite pinks and browns.

Facts about Laguna Agate's.

Laguna agates are from the Sierra San Martin, the hills above the nearly abandoned town of Ejido Ojo Laguna, north of Ciudad Chihuahua, Mexico. These true Laguna's are the most famous of the colorful banded nodular agates of Northern Mexico. Some of the better known claims are Conejeros, Macedonio, San Martin, Alianza, Diana, Mezquite, and El Puerto. In earlier times a wide variety of agate nodules from the State of Chihuahua were sold mixed with these true Laguna's, including those from the Sierra Gallego just to the north which includes Ranchos San Gregorio, Agua Nueva and Coyamito. Moctezuma agates occur just to the north of this area and were probably included as well. I have no idea if agates from as far as Apache, Casas Grandes or Parcelas might have turned up in these sacks. At this time few knew or cared about such distinctions.
