Rough Base Agate Polished Tips are a natural, lustrous rough specimen base with a polished tip. They range in size between 2 to 5 inches in height. These points are ethically sourced directly from Brazil. Agates can show a wide variety of vivid, multiple colors. These are principally the result of traces of oxides of iron, manganese, titanium, chromium, nickel, and other elements.
Agate Natural Polished Tip is a unique and fascinating piece and comes in many varieties. Agate is a variety of chalcedony, a cryptocrystalline form of quartz. Translucency, patterns of color, or moss-like inclusions may distinguish this stone from other forms of chalcedony. Agates were found by the ancient Greek philosopher Theophrastus. They were said to ward off all kinds of evil, heal scorpion stings and snakebites, calm raging storms, and bring victory in times of war.
