B830 & B831
The first pic is of two laker’s. B830 is the larger white one with the large banding. The banding begins under the small eye of agate, as the banding begins in the quartz. It then extends more and becomes a salmon color in the bands. You turn the agate, and the banding now is wide and the bands are white around a quartz center. It weighs 8.6 ounces and is price is $55
The round red next to the white laker is what looks like to me is solid agate that has banding towards the outer areas. No quartz, and I put a little water on the face to show off more of the banding. It weighs 6.2 ounces and is $50
The next laker in pic #2 is a good mix of agate and quartz. The center looks to be of solid agate with thin banding extending outward. The outer skin looks quartz but there is colors below the skin. There is also some limonite on the skin. It weighs 6.6 ounces and is $35
This agate is all agate with a lighter color agate between darker color agate with a white band separating the two colors. It weighs 2.2 ounces and is $20
