Large round shaped purple semi precious stone Amethyst Sage Agate designer cabochon 55 mm in diameter (almost 2.25 inches!) and 5 mm thick.
So named for its pretty purplish color and mossy inclusions.
Amethyst Sage Agate is a form of Moss Agate from Nevada and is popular for its dendrites.
The mine was originally called the Nine Mile Road as the mine was accessed by the Nine Mile Road, it was renamed Amethyst Sage Agate by a miner and the name stuck. The claim has been owned by West Coast Mining for over 20 years.
The material is nasty to dig as it is found in an ash.
Agates are members of the chalcedony family. They have a hardness of 7, making them great stone cabochons to wear.
In many traditions agate is believed to cure the stings of scorpions and the bites of snakes, soothe the mind, prevent contagion, quiet thunder and lightning, secure the favor of the powerful, and bring victory over enemies.
