Portfolio/Past Projects > Agates

Collection of Kristopher Kelly

These fine Agates are found in the mountains of Argentina between 3,000 and 7,000 ft elevation. The beautiful patterns and colors that they display are wonderfully complimented by Quartz patches and sometimes open geodes.

This set has a very distinct mirrored patterning and highly contrasting colors. With all stones natural flaws are inevitable. In the case of Condors this usually appears in natural edges on the backside of the pieces. We could completely eliminate this issue by making the pieces smaller. We feel this would be a disservice to the stone and choose to instead smooth and polish the edges to maximize the face. This in no way effects either the comfort or the wearing stability of the set.
