Can you believe that this agate formed naturally in this beautiful leaf shape? Thom Lane left the thin agate crust so you can see the original shape of the stone. He offered it as a specimen because it is so extraordinary in shape, color, variety of features and beauty. I left the back of the setting open so you can fully enjoy the translucent stone.

Zenz mentions Agua Nueva in each of his 3 volumes. He shows a photo of mining at Rancho Agua Nueva in Agates II and he profiles Thom in Agates III. Rancho Agua Nueva borders the Coyomito Ranch and is north of the Laguna deposits in the Mexican state of Chihuahua. Agua Nueva is famous for its pink agates, so this one is unusual in its fantastic autumn leaf colors as well. A wild variety of freshwater pearls completes the composition.
