Persian Flame Agate Rock Slab 40
Persian agates are primarily traded in the northwest province of Khorasan, Iran. Several varieties can be found in the market, but plume agates are the most colorful and most sought after. The agate contains numerous plume structures in a variety of colors including green, yellow, red, white, and orange. These plume structures are characterized by elongate billowy inclusions that can resemble clouds of smoke or feathers. The material with predominantly green, white, and orange inclusions is sold as “Bahary” (spring) agate. The material that is principally green, yellow, and red is sold as “Paaeasy” (autumn) agate. These slabs will make stunning finished jewelry.
