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.
