4.2" Polished Flower Agate Flame - Madagascar
This is a beautiful, milky flower agate specimen that was collected, sculpted and polished in Madagascar. It is 4.2" tall and bares flower-like formations of white chalcedony peppered throughout the agate. The base has been cut flat so that it displays nicely on a hard surface and would be suitable as either an indoor or outdoor decorative piece.
Flower agate is a formation of agate that contains plumes of white-pink, opaque chalcedony formations that are scattered throughout. Occasionally these specimens are found with white and pink banded agate, as well as milky white cross sections of quartz crystals. This type of agate comes out of Madagascar and is most often sold as a polished stone. Some of these polished stones contain pockets of botryoidal agate formations that resemble large spherical grape agates.
