Wave Hill Agate designer gem 1/3/2018 01 - 44 x 22 x 6.9 mm - 40 carats - This is my favorite agate in the world to cut and this gem is cut from one very pretty piece. This agate comes from the remote Northern Territory badlands of Australia and is rare enough that it's not at all easy to get. This stunning drop marquis cabochon is one of the prettiest Wave Hill cabs I've cut with great color, lovely translucence with amazing 3D fortifications and a super sweet crystal pocket on the back. This stone has a high, beautifully rounded dome, girdled sides and a flat beveled back all with outstanding liquid high gloss luster. Here is a video clip to see the stone in motion:
