These agate slices range in size from approx 2 to 3 inches long and have been dyed a bright navy blue type of color. The dye is deep inside the stone but penetrates variably so some slices may still have clear or white patterned areas where the stone was too dense to accept the the dye. These agate slices, also sometimes called slabs, have been polished smooth and shiny on both sides. Each slice has its own unique character! This size of slice is often used in weddings as place markers or table markers and I have them available in bulk for weddings and other large events. Because agate is a very sturdy stone, it is also often used for things like jewelry, wirewrap, wind chimes, etc. Agate is said to promote inner stability, composure, and maturity. Photos are stock photos, you will not receive these exact agates but ones very similar. Colors may appear different on different computers and monitors.
