Condor Agate Designer Cabochon

red-line.gif


This large and stunningly marked Condor agate has some of the patterning of the more sought after Laguna agates but also includes splashes of brick red and brown-black, making it an unusual stone indeed. I've border-wrapped the stone in a 21 gauge sterling silver wire with double swirls and tiny claws.

Treat someone special to this one-of-a-kind gift or buy it for yourself.

The pendant measures 2 3/8" from top of bail and is 1 1/4" wide.

Note: Agate is a form of chalcedony, often banded, that comes in an amazing variety of colors. It forms by filling a cavity in a host rock. Agates are found throughout much of the world; the most famous mining of the mineral in Germany’s Nahe Valley. It was highly valued as a talisman in ancient times and is said to quench thirst and protect from fevers. Ancient Persians used agates to divert storms. Some use agate to achieve success in international trade! Condor agate, one of the more prolific and flashy agates, is mined in Argentina. Banding tends not to be as pronounced as say Lagunas, but the vivid colors and wild contrasts make these agates highly desirable. Condor was discovered by Luis de Los Santos in 1993 and is trade mark of St. Paul Gems & Mineral.

Enjoy this unique piece of hand-crafted jewelry.
