This agate was cut and shaped by hand and then polished to a mirror finish in our rock tumbler.
Agate is a classic gemstone that has used to create jewelry for thousands of years and is still extremely popular today.
Its popularity comes from the fine banding and vibrant colours that make this gemstone so unique.
Agate is a variation of quartz and in its pure form it would be colourless and translucent and the beautiful colours come from inclusions of different minerals like iron, manganese, chromium and many more.
These are stones that were tumble polished in a rock tumbler.
The rough stones are put into the tumbler with abrasive grit where they are tumbled for weeks, during this time the sharp edges are rounded off.
During the process, ever finer grits are used and so the stones are slowly getting a smooth and shiny surface.
The final stage of the tumbling process is using a special polishing powder instead of abrasive grit to polish the stones to a mirror finish.
