Tabular Cut Landscape Agate / 1

View in large 18 x 25 mm

 

Some of you may remember a stickpin I made using two landscape agates. I bought those agates over 25 years ago from a well known husband/wife team of gem and mineral dealers. Well, I lost touch with them and have never ever seen the likes of these tabular cut brazilian agates since. They were cut in Idar-Oberstein, Germany. They are polished perfectly flat on both sides, and are thin...about 2-3 mm. thick. They are also calibrated to standard sizes. Welllllllll, I found those people again....and I attended a mineral show on Sunday...just to see them...I told them about the agates and how very much I'd like to acquire some more.......and she produced a box FULL of them.....the SAME old stock! I bought all of them! I'm so thrilled to have them. Some of them are quite striking.
