Just a great specimen. Even if it isn't an agate.

Hi Weasel, I thought I  would have some fun with this since it did resemble a fish of sorts. It came with a group of Bahia agates from The Rock Shed about two years ago that I am slowly working thru during tumbling. I only saw the quartz matrix up close when I was sorting the agates for my next batch and it did resemble something mean and nasty under a microscope. The piece weighs 4 ounces and measures 2" long x1.25" wide x 1" high. Regardless of whatever it is or was at that time, I would not want to put my finger in its mouth. Cheers, arbayowling
