Kentucky Agate Cut Perfectly Into 2 Mirror Image Pieces Of Quartz Filled Vug
This is a single piece of Kentucky agate that originally showed a single cut side displaying red agate band on yellow agate band against a field of black agate with a botryoidal center. The agate bands are surrounded by a moss like red and clear agate as shown in one of the pictures. The back side showed its natural red shape.
We decided to make an additional cut along the backside. A location was selected and the cut was made.
We polished this to a mirror finish.

Smaller cut piece:

So with this sale you will get both cut pieces showing the 2 cut and polished faces plus the original unpolished face.
Almost all Kentucky agate shows some fracture lines due to the way it is formed. These pieces show remarkably few fractures. Be sure to zoom in on pictures to see the few small fractures.
