Polished Madagascar Banded Silk Agate No6
Madagascar Banded Silk Agate Polished Stone
This is a lovely stone of a type of Agate found in Madagascar. It has been beautifully polished and finished and looks absolutely wonderful !
Geologically, it is Agate that has formed along with Carnelian, but in what colours !
The orange/red base is provided by the Carnelian whilst the Agate has flowed into and around it creating an intriguing, swirling pattern with white, black, pink, brown, yellow, tan and still more colours. Not every single stone shows every single colour, and the patterns are different from stone to stone, but it's that very quality that makes each stone a gorgeous individual !
The name derives from the fact that they are found in Madagascar, the surface pattern frequently shows lines and bands and, perhaps with some imagination, the pattern also resembles the folds you see when you fold up a length of silk.
Not only is this a gorgeous stone, but it is a great size to hold and to work with. As we said earlier, absolutely wonderful !
Size approx. 56mm x 45mm x 27mm
Weight approx. 77grms
