Incredible slab of a Limb Cast agate from Paulina, Oregon. This slab was cut from a section of a petrified log known as a “limb cast” The slab has been fully polished (on one side only). BONUS – Iris Agate – In addition to beautifully included moss agate the slab will exhibit some areas of mild but unmistakable iris effect when backlit with direct sunlight. You can catch a glimpse of this iris effect in several of the photos. Iris effect is rare in in agate and is highly desirable. It occurs from the tight banding in agates and usually only is seen when the agate is sliced very thin. This slab is sliced on the thicker side for finding any iris effect. Yes, the slab has some natural fractures and yes, the slab has been cut with a slight taper which means that the log was mounted in the saw vice several times as it was being cut. These distractions are overshadowed by the fact that the agate has iris. Thickness is tapers from 5/16 to 1/8 inch. Slab weighs 10 ounces (285 gm).
