Origin: Mexico, Arizona, California. and New Mexico

Characteristics: a variety of chalcedony, semi-precious natural gemstone discovered so far only in certain areas of central and northern Mexico and the southwestern United States (New Mexico, Arizona and California).

This piece of agate doesn't have any of the fire color it's known for.  What it does have is it's beauty in the likeness of a cowboy boot and a beautiful brown glow from chalcedony agate.  Everyone I have showed this to has said it looks like a boot.  This wouldn't take much to put a nice finish on it and make a pendant a man or woman would love wearing. It is translucent and once it is polished it will glow much more than it does now.  There are some matrix still attached on the back of the stone, this could be removed if you wanted to.

Mohs scale hardness: 6 - 7

Approx size : Irregular: 1 3/4" x 3/4-1" x 7mm. Weight: 37g

Preformed slabs:  I try and remove all or most of the pits and open fractures to give you a more acceptable slab.  I also try my best to smooth out all the edges and the front and back. 

Finishing purchased slabs:  My recommendations are for you to start with 320 diamond grit and finish with 600 grit before polishing.  I have created several posts that show how I create cabs,  see my website blog on Designsbyshirl. 

My pictures: I use a full spectrum 45 w light bulb - photography photo CFL 5500K.  It's a daylight balanced pure white light. 

My first 2 pictures (front and back) show items wet, this brings out the colors you should see in a finished product.  Other pictures show items dry, this should show imperfections (small cracks or pits) if there are any.  Contact us if you have any questions.  Translucent items will have at least one picture taken with a backlight.

An 18 mm dime or 24mm quarter and 10 mm background squares in some pictures should help you with image sizing.
