I found the most awesome Montane Agate on Etsy! I got it from Lapidarious, a wonderful shop!
Here's his description of it because it's perfect!
"This extraordinary example of fine Monatan Agate is as spacy as the picture within. Little scout ships leaving the big mother ship over the high desert of eastern Oregon. A trip waiting to be set in metal and shown off!
NICE nice material.
Definitely for the adventuresome.
18.46ct. and 24mm x 25.5mm x 4mm in size
Calling occupants of interplanetary craft....."
I looked at it for quite a while, wanted it badly, then finally bought it! LOL It is not for sale because I'm keeping it! It's all mine!
It turned out exactly like I pictured it in my mind, which never happens for me. Usually a design mophs and changes while I'm making it.
The stone just begged for the alien face on the back, so I cut out the eyes on the back plate, and cut a tiny spaceship shape to attach the jumpring.
I LOVE how it turned out!
I also got a gorgeous little Oregon Petrified Wood Limb Cast Agate from him. It's going to be a ring, as soon as I have time to finish it! :)
Right now I have to get off this computer and get to work in the shop. Got a few orders to finish. YAY!
