Forming in cavities in Rhyolite, these unique and beautiful Red Agates (also referred as Crater Agates and Red Fox Agates) are colored deep red from imbedded iron oxides and form in a rounded nodular habit (note that this rich red color is completely natural, void of any dyes). There is also a thin, dark-grey layer of Agate between the Rhyolite and red Agate, framing the red Agate perfectly. The contrast, not only in color, but between the rough Rhyolite and smooth, nodular Agate, is quite eye-catching! This piece is no exception, with one cavity located on the very top, and another centered in the side. A very unique and aesthetic piece in excellent condition.
