Red Flame Agate Rough
This Red Flame Agate came from an old collection we bought about
15 years ago. There isn't much good material like this anymore, but we are
happy to be able to offer these fine pieces. This material has a clear base
with nice red flames!
Agate is a form of microcrystaline quartz. It is usually formed in nodules
and has transparent, or translucent portions. As with all of the other species
in the quartz family, agate takes a high polish with cerium oxide, but also
takes a fine polish with tin oxide and diamond. Mohs hardness 6.5 to 7.
