Inca Agate

The Gem Shop has received a new shipment of nodular Inca Agate!  Inca Agate displays beautiful red, orange, yellow, and purple coloring in nodular formations.  The nodules can also have pseudomorphic and sagenitic inclusions.  Inca Agate is mined high in the Andes Mountains in Peru.  This nodular material is collected out of four different deposits.  First brought to the market at the Wonderful World of Agates Show in 2012, this new banded agate showcases great promise to agate collectors worldwide.  The Gem Shop now has a variety of nodular Inca Agate material:
