This wonderful gemstone specimen arrived at our shop as a raw rock from Brazil. It’s a sample piece direct from the quarry, but unfortunately shortly after the source went offline and no further contact was made. There’s a little wavy stripe pattern in this caramel color agate charm pendant, but it’s only visible with the light held behind. A few larger-size cabochons are also available in the shop in bulk, and the pattern shows in those better.
The cut of this pendant is an experiment because polishing flat with strait edges on lapidary wheels is not what it is meant to be. After all, it turned out a cute piece, that got drilled with a 1 mm hole, and set with sterling silver 21 gauge round and half round jewelry wire hanger. The wire runs through the hole, so the stone never fell off. The pendant comes with a silver plated 20″ x 1.5 mm snake chain necklace.
A small piece of raw agate is still available, maybe 2 pendants worth. If you like this agate, I can cut a custom shape and size pendant for you.
