Item details

When I first started selling stones here on Etsy, it was to destash my collection. I'd collected baskets and drawers of beautiful stones, with the idea of learning to make jewelry one day. But they sat around in those drawers and baskets, and I felt guilty just hoarding them, so I listed a few. They sold out quickly, and I decided that I would go out and buy more, and see how that went. And that's how I became a stone-seller. I love the search, and the joy of discovering a beautiful stone - guilt-free - and then passing it on to someone who will love it *and* use it. I may have acquired a few more stones myself, in the process, so it didn't work out entirely as planned.

Dragon Veins agate are often made by heating a stone, and then quenching it to create a pattern of crazing through the stone - and then they are dyed. I suspect that is the case with this one - it was probably a pale yellow stone to begin with, and then dyed with pale blue. But for some reason the colors are pale pastels rather than the usual bright colors you see in dyed stones, and the tiny pattern of cracks, the way they glint and catch the light - reminded me of dragon scales rather than dragon veins.

The upper tip of the cab has broken off - so instead of a teardrop, it is slightly flattened. It has been smoothed and finished, but I didn't want you to get any unpleasant surprises.

My husband bought me digital calipers this summer. Best present ever! Now I can make very accurate measurements for my stones, and in record time:

33.96mm long
25.62mm wide
5.50mm thick

Buying and selling stones over the internet will always be a distant second to buying the stones in real life - being able to hold them and see the colors for yourself. No matter how hard I try, there is no way I can guarantee that the stone will look exactly like the image you see on your monitor. I *can* guarantee that if you are not happy with your stone, you can return it for a full refund.
