QUARTZ (IRIDESCENT or IRIS),Ojo de Laguna, Chihuahua, Mexico.
QUARTZ (IRIDESCENT or IRIS) agate slice. Published specimen.
Ojo de Laguna, Chihuahua, Mexico.
Measures 2-3/8x2x1/16 inches. A breathtakingly beautiful specimen when viewed with a single, incandescent light source, sunlight or even a candle. It is illustrated in The Beauty of Banded Agates by Michael Carlson, on page 16.
Aside from two other specimens that I saw (but could not buy) many years ago, this is the finest example of iris agate that I know of. Possibly the finest example known.
 

Price $1,000.
