Fire agate w/ gold
An excellent Deer Creek fire agate with green and red iridescence, paired with a natural gold nugget from Idaho, with 18k gold granulation, in a sterling silver setting. This piece is tiny, with a lot going on.
I source fire agates miner-direct, from a miner who also cuts his own stones, which I think is pretty cool.
They are in fact not agates, but an unusual type of chalcedony, found almost exclusively in Arizona. Fire agates are definitely rare collector’s stones.
1.7 cm long, on an 18” antique finish brass chain.
