Five Random Carver Agates

Five Random Carver Agates

Here are five random Carver agates I cut this week! One is the first one I’ve seen!

These are five of the six agates I cut this week. The sixth stone will be the subject of my next blog. It is so cool and unusual.

Being lucky enough to cut five totally different agate types in a single week is a ‘rock hound’ fantasy! And why I never get bored as I continue to explore the amazing diversity of the Carver Agate Field agates.

The highly variable colors, patterns, banding, and sagenitic inclusions make these just pure fun. Rock #4685 is another ‘first’ for me: white matrix with multiple colored sagenitic inclusions. I wish I had 50 pounds of this, but no, this was a small vein agate.
