5.3" Saddle Rim Sagenite Agate Slab - Gary Buss Claim, Oregon

This is a gorgeous slab of Saddle Rim Sagenite Agate that was collected from the Gary Buss Claim in Mahleur County, Oregon. It is polished to a glossy-finish on one side and features beautiful spherical, radiating aggregations of sagenite crystals throughout the agate.

Comes with an acrylic display stand.

Sagenite agate is a formation of agate that contains acicular (needle-like) formations of fanning sagenite crystals that have been encapsulated in a mass of pseudomorphic agate. This occurs when agate fills a cavity within rock that had prior formations of minerals, in this case being the golden sagenite crystal clusters.

Sagenite is a name that often refers to acicular rutile crystals, which in this case is accurate. The golden crystals within this specimen are technically rutile (TiO2) crystals.
