SOLD Chalcedony / Amethyst
Mamuju area, Sulawesi Barat province
Sulawesi Island, Indonesia
3.9 x 2.4 x 1.6 CM (miniature)
A fine miniature specimen of this now famous material from Indonesia. The best of these new Agates are esthetic, richly colored, have bright luster, no staining, and are very 3 dimensional like this piece. The find has been large enough that the cost of a really good example is now quite affordable. We are told that the area producing the best quality is now more or less exhausted and so these will soon be more scarce. This piece was purchased from a small lot of selected lapidary grade pieces. We are pleased it can now survive in its natural form.
