Polka Dot agate from Central Oregon has a long history stretching back to early Native Americans. This material is only found in Central Oregon, but was known to be traded among various tribes with pieces being traced as far East as Illinois. While the older material is the characteristic brown/orange on white, the newer material is brown/orange on a blue/white translucent base.

The dots in the agate range in size from nearly invisible up to about 1/4 inch across. Most of them are completely agatized. Some appear to be a soft iron oxide material similar to limonite or hematite. Most are sharp, concentric spheres. Some are slightly irregular spherical outlines.

This is from newer stock rough. It contains two small vugs of druzy crystals. (shown in photo)

Cord not included, for illustrative purposes only. Sterling Silver Chains available.

Note: This piece is hand crafted. It is unique and will have slight variances on the measurements provided. As with all natural stones, pieces may contain cracks, pits, and natural inclusions. Holes drilled in stones can weaken the structural integrity of a piece, so please look and mount the focal bead in a way that will not put undue pressure on the stone. Please look at the photos and descriptions closely. I will sell various grades of items and price them appropriately for their quality level.
