A real beauty!  Glad you got a solid piece, I have always had troubles with the reds in lace as I seem to invariably get some with a thick enough iron band between the layers that it separates easily along the band.  :hello2:

This is the last of the bunch that I received from Jay (Sandsave).  Mexican Lace material.  Really beautiful stuff with the Crazy Lace features, vugs, and lots of red jasper.

Love the picture jasper!

How much work has gone into getting rid of that bad spot on the dugway geode?

That first one is a stunner! The botryoidal one (2) is really cool too.

Had a warm day yesterday and got some saw time in. They're all cuts of broken eggs, all the whole eggs are going in flat-rate boxes right now but still plenty of surprises! The first one is a face cut on a broken bot egg that came out way better than I expected. The agate is full of staining and dendrites between the layers, which is what's giving it that sharp contrast. Dragonskin teggs from the claim.

Nice ones!  Wow having to go from 7 to 5 1/4 would take a while.  Great jobs as always.

Great work on those obsidian spheres!  The polish step can get tricky depending on the specific material.  These really pop!
