This extremely rare and unusual formation of agate was one of 5 from the find and is reputed to be the 3rd best of the lot - the 2 better specimens were sold at Tuscon in 2005. The find was made in September 2004. The agate "growth" stands 65mm above its agate and chalcedony base. It has a translucent, pimpled surface and is blue/gray on one side and a dull cream/yellow on the other Overall size:85*84*70mm
