Trophy agate

Congratulations to agate collector James of South Beach who just recently found this beautiful agate weighing in at ¼ of a pound and 2¾" long. The stone appears black with white frosting, however when illuminated with a strong light source from the bottom you can see it is a lavender cloud agate. We were so worried that the frosting would disappear on this beauty but it came out well. This will make a nice addition to ones agate collection.
