Large, colorful Moctezuma agate specimen. This piece is rough cut but not polished. Face measures 2.5" x 2" and piece weighs 1/2 lb. Fracture-free; bright, contrasting pastel banding that is so sought-after in these agates. This uncommon material could be kept as an impressive specimen piece or recut and worked into exquisite cabochons. (Don't have time to do it myself and need the room in my shop.) This variety of agate was collected in Chihuahua, Mexico decades ago but is now very hard to come by. Material shown wet.
Item will ship in a padded flat rate envelope. Will combine shipping whenever possible on multiple purchases. Feel free to contact me with any questions. Thanks for looking and
