Malawi Agate Polished Collector Rock

This lovely polished rock nodule of Malawi Agate is 2.75 inches by 2.25 inches and it is 1/2 inch at its thickest.

Translucent banded agate!  It is polished on one face-natural on the edges and broken rock on the back.

No gemstone is more creatively striped by nature than agate, chalcedony quartz that forms in concentric layers in a wide variety of colors and textures. Each individual agate forms by filling a cavity in host rock. As a result, agate often is found as a round nodule, with concentric bands like the rings of a tree trunk.

The bands sometimes look like eyes, sometimes fanciful scallops, or even a landscape with dendrite trees.
