BUBBLE GUM AGATES, 1/2 lb. Large South Dakota Badlands Lapidary/Tumble Rough, Cabbing, Beautiful and Unique
These Bubble Gum Agates from the Badlands of South Dakota, feature eyes and swirls as well as the lumpy surface that gives them their name. All of our South Dakota Bubble Gum agates are hand collected from public lands within the Buffalo Gap Grasslands near Rapid City and Scenic, SD. These are larger pieces ranging in size from 1" to 1 1/2" and are perfect for slicing into cabochons. There are between 10 and 20 stones per bag, depending on the size of the stones. These stones have a hardness of 7, so they will polish to a beautiful high shine with intense colors. The eyes and swirl patterns show up much more vividly once they are polished. The patterns go all the way through the stones so the insides are very interesting when they are cut open. The last photo is a cab cut from one of the agates from this batch. Photos show the stones dry. We have lots more tumbling rough and lapidary rough in our store.
