The incredible patterns and colors of this unique and large nicely-domed Orpheus Agate Cabochon are a truly breathtaking example of Nature's art. With patterns resembling brushstrokes, this cabochon could be said to resemble a celestially inspired Van Gogh painting. Rich ribbons of Gold wind through a bubbling deep Green background with tiny pockets of white and clear quartz, all embracing a heart of rare foliage-like plumes of Gold, Green and Reddish Orange. The richness of the colors and the incredible bold patterns make this cab a stand out top shelf example of this rare agate! This striking cabochon is ready to be set in your next creation or simply become a treasured part of your collection.
Orpheus Agate Designer Cut Cabochon
46.6 x 27.1 x 7.8mm
I cut this cab by hand and it's been polished to a high sheen both front and back with slightly rounded bottom edges for easy setting.
Note that all my photos were taken using full spectrum lighting, which does fairly well in replicating natural sunlight. However, almost all cut stones will look best and brightest in direct sunlight.
This rare agate comes from Kardzhali - Bulgaria. In 2004 the Agate exhibition in Munich found that Orpheus agate is unique in the world. Named after the ancient legendary Greek musical hero who frolicked in the area where the deposit is located. This unusual and rare stone from Bulgaria can be comprised of many layers of beautiful green Seladonit and golden yellow/brown jasper with some pockets of clear agate, with, on rare occasions, beautiful plumes within the clear agate.
