This gorgeous slab of Condor agate from Argentina shows off characteristic blue, red, and brown bands along with clear quartz crystals in the polished face. Two edges are covered in the natural rind and the rear side is cut flat but not polished.
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.
