Framed Moctezuma Agate Half Nodules
« on: December 15, 2023, 02:19:22 PM »

I'm getting old and I am dispersing my collection of rocks, fossils and lapidary projects  I've accumulated over the past 40-50 years.  One of my favorites are the relatively small Moctezuma agate nodules.  You are always pleased with what you find when you cut one.  This Christmas I made shadow box picture frames and filled them with polished Moctezuma agate nodule halves for my five granddaughters.  The project turned out as well as I expected, albeit, my woodworking could use improvement.  jkfoam
