FIRE AGATE SLICE
This is a natural untreated rough piece of a fire agate that we have polished. We have cut the stone on the side to capture the beauty of the agate formation rather than the stone on top.

This stone was mined in Mexico but it is found in Arizona also.The stone appears to glow inside like opal.The gem is thought to be formed when hot water saturated with silica and lava oxide invade cavities in the rock and cool.Chalcendony with iron oxide begin to grow on the surface.The iron oxide gives the basic brown colour to the stone.It grows layers of silica and iron oxide. These alternating silica and iron oxide cause the brillant fire from the stone.After the iron oxide ran out of the specimen colourless chalcedony contined to grow over it.
The colors in the image are different from the actual piece since in reality it’s not that smoky. The worst part is, the back with the pyrite seems to have less pyrite there than what was presented in the image. It’s crumbled but there were no pieces in i
so sorry to hear , could you return for a refund?
The luster doesn’t look exactly the same and the color appears a tad darker but it’s the same stone and accurate based on the selling page. Still a really good buy and well packaged
