ON this auction I have nice piece of AWESOME Agatized Algae or " Stromatolite", I have been told by the previous Owner .This lot is cut on one side, and appears to be a fairly solid piece, and is a very nice example with some nice beautifully patterned material, that was obtained in a collection we purchased . This piece appears to have a small fracture that I could see and I can't really tell if t is any further on in on this specimen. It has a nice patterns & colors ! This would make a LOT of cabachons, or wire wraping material, or be nice carving material, or make some nice spes ! This piece has beautiful texture,and BEAUTIFUL PATTERNING. Lots of nice "wave" patterns on this specimen !

If you are looking for some very unusual material THIS IS IT!, so let the bidding begin! I am in the begining stages of the Lapidary Hobby, and got this with a very old collection from the 1960's. I have more SLABS, ROUGH, SPECIMENS, EQUIPMENT, and just about anything else you can think of that I will be listing in the future


The pictures were taken indoors, and with the material wet, and don't really show how cool this stuff is! T is some glare on parts of it. I bought four OLDER collections, and part of a fifth, and am kind of overwhelmed right now.

The lot weighs about 1 pound 15.4 ounces . It measures about about 4 inches by, about 3 inches by about 3 1/4 inches at the thickest points! I didn't try to clean it up as much as I could have, so what you see is what you get. What a cool lot of material that you just don't find anyw, that would be a nice addition to anybody's collection!.The pictures don't really show the true beauty of this baby, so bid with confidence when I say this is some nice material. I could not get the glare problem taken care of on the photos.

What an unusual item! Shipping will be 6.95 ( Parcel Post ) paid by the buyer. I DO COMBINE SHIPPING ON MULTIPLE WINNING BIDS, and can ship in a flat rate box if enough items are won !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I accept Paypal, Money Orders, Cashiers Checks, and GOOD Personal checks (up to a 7 day hold to allow to clear bank).Thanks for looking at my auction!
