This is a larger DENDRITIC AGATE crystal palm stone. The stone comes from Madagascar, which has some of the most energetic stones in the world! Shown next to a US quarter coin for size comparison. VERY nice. It has an amazing amount of detail in the inclusions/patterns. Including banding, crystalline "window" areas, spots/eyes, and more.
There are a few tiny organic spots here and there from inclusions that were close to the surface as the stone was shaped and polished. ALL inclusions/formations present are 100% natural parts of the stone. MUCH nicer 'in person'! There Very cool! It would be nice as part of a crystal grid, held in the hand while meditating, or just put on display!
It weighs about 6.5oz and measures approximately 2 3/4" inches long X 2 3/8" inches wide at the widest point X 1 1/16" inches tall/thick at the thickest point. Code-020723-731
