Blue Agate from Mexico

Blue Agate from Mexico is a very attractive blue with some tan matrix (most of it comes off in the tumbler). Most pieces are smaller than a silver dollar so it is already to go into the tumbler.

This material is very rare. It was mostly mined in the early to late 1980's and has been gone since then. When it was available, the wholesale price was around $25 per pound. We found an old time rockhound in Colorado who had a stash of it, and we were able to negotiate for his entire collection.

To see a picture of it before and after polished you can follow this link;
