India Moss Agate sphere
« on: July 08, 2019, 07:01:34 PM »

This piece I picked up at the Nipomo show last year from a retiring rockhound and his recollection of provenance was from India.  The sphere finished up about 3.5 inches but presented a pleasing finish.india moss 1.jpg

It's a really pretty moss with great depth! Same stuff here in eastern Oregon, with the alternating green moss strands, clear and white agate.

I rock hunt in the Antelope/Ashwood area of the John Day river basin in Oregon. 90% of what I post is from this area, from private property where I have permission to hike and collect. The material I find is for personal use only, I do not have landowner permission to sell. Thanks for understanding!

Great looking sphere. Definitely green moss from India.

That's a winner. I like it much better than the typical opaque white.
