Description

White fortification agate from India is a high quality fine banded agate. (Stock 290) The weight of the rough pieces run from 3 pounds to 15 pounds each. This white to blue/gray chalcedony agate will make some beautiful polished cabochons and more, or just polish the face for an interesting specimen.  White fortification agate is an excellent agate and would look elegant over a red, black, blue or other dark color to show the patterns.  The fine banded fortification agate is reminiscent of Lake Superior agate. This is the most dense agate we have slabbed in a long time.  Remember to slab with a sharp blade.  We use our diamond blade dresser and sharpen/clean the blade with each slab for larger rough.  Some material is thought to have iris agate effects showing colors of the rainbow. For iris agate effects, the slabs are sliced very thin across the layers, then polished. Price listed is for one pound.
