This beautiful specimen of Condor agate from Argentina shows off characteristic blue and white bands in the polished face. The sides of the nodule are covered in the natural rind and the rear shows banding.
Condor agate is a highly-prized gem and mineral specimen from the Mendoza Province of Argentina. Most specimens feature red, brown, and black banding, but colors can vary into blues, greens, and even white. A relatively new discovery, only known outside of Argentina since the early 1990s, Condor agate makes a wonderful addition to any mineral collection.
