Snakeskin Agate Rough

Snakeskin Agate (a Variety of Chalcedony), by the Pound ($7.50/lb)

Snakeskin Agate Rough

Click image for slide show

[2] [3] [4] [5] [6] [7] [8] [9] [10]

This is rough, uncut Snakeskin Agate, also known as Angel Agate. We're not sure but it was probably collected in Oregon. The material is actually a variety of chalcedony, but with a closer look you notice the snakeskin-like pattern on the outsides of the pieces. We have never cut any cabs or tumbled any of it ourselves but our understanding is that if you tumble it for just the right amounts of time/grits, you can keep that snakeskin pattern on the clear chalcedony. (Photos of it shown both wet and dry.

This is a slab of Spider Web Jasper. This material comes from the Oregon/Idaho border. This one has lots of webbing and 'vine' patterns, especiall on the one side. The white area of the top corner is a little bit of common opal. There are some fracture lines to work around if cutting cabochons, but still some nice potential. It is roughly 3 3/4" x 2 1/2-3". It is around 8 mm thick and weighs 4.2 ounces, or 119.6 grams.

Sugilite-Like Slab

Purple Lapidary Slab - Possibly Low-Grade Sugilite(?)

Sugilite-Like Slab

Click image for slide show

[2] [3] [4] [5] [6] [7] [8] [9]

This is a slice from a beautiful purple rough material we recently acquired from an old collection. We saw an ad for 'Rhodonite or Sugilite' lapidary rough. The photos looked like a beautiful pink Rhodonite. But when we saw the material in person, it was definitely more purple, not pink. The person we bought it from said it came from someone who had worked at what once was Kaiser Steel years ago (which had been located in that vicinity). That company would import Manganese from South Africa for its steel production. His guess was that this was a low-grade Sugilite, brought over because of the Manganese. It's hard and does take a nice polish. But please note - we do NOT know what it actually is, but it is a beautiful purple - some pieces are more solid-looking color, others with nice patterning and even some with tiny orbs.

This specific piece is has an almost gemmy-looking section in it, some green and a number of tiny orbs - great pattern-potential! It measures roughly 3" x 2 1/2" and 6.6 mm thick. The weight is 90 grams, or 3.2 ounces.

Morocco Seam Agate Rough

[2] [3] [4] [5] [6] [7] [8] [9] [10]

This is rough Seam Agate from Kerouchen, Morocco, by the pound. While we have seen this material on the marked for the last couple of years, the material is new to us. We've cut just a few pieces - a couple have yielded some gorgeous slices, while a couple more have just small splashes of color. Pieces are thin - from about 1/2" to 1 1/2" thick mostly, and range in size on average between about 2" - 5" one direction (though it is possible for some to be a little larger or smaller than that). The pieces in the photos are the exact batch we'll pull from but obviously not all pieces are visible. If ordering more than 3 pounds, please also select the Medium Flat Rate Box at the bottom of this page.

This is a Brazilian Agate slab. It was sliced thin (3.6 mm) and when held up to the light (main photo) you see the awesome details that create the piece. It is roughly 4" x 3" at its wider points and weighs 59.6 grams, or 2.1 ounces. Note in the 2nd photo you can just barely see remnants of pencil writing, it should erase or polish off. Again, please note how thin it is if your thought is for cabbing. Very neat piece.BRAZILIAN AGATES here.

Chrysocolla Rough

Click image for slide show

[2] [3] [4] [5] [6] [Sample of Slabs wet]

This is Chrysocolla rough, some with Malachite, Cuprite and/or Quartz. We have several batches, all similar to what you see, so you may or may not get any of the specific pieces you see in the photos. Sizes vary from approximately 2" up to 4-5" one way. We acquired this from an old collection, we did not collect it ourselves, so we can't say for sure where it was collected. As with any rough material, some pieces are nicer than others and we don't know what each piece will yield, there are often unforeseen flaws, fractures, etc., but we've sliced several pieces and each one yielded a variety of nice potential (see last photo with sample slabs). (Some photos were taken through the chicken-wire cage, sorry!) If ordering more than 3 pounds, please also select the Medium Flat Rate Box at the bottom of this page.
