AGATES

  
By H.G. Macpherson

  

(Softback)

(Second hand copy in very good condition)

  

Agates, when cut and polished, are among the most beautiful of semi-precious stones. One of agate's chief attractions lies in the great contrast between the dull, rough and pitted exterior of the pebble, newly released from its ancient lava bubble, and its unpredictable, often wonderful interior. 

  

This booklet contains information on their distribution around the British Isles, collecting, cutting and polishing. 

  

It was jointly published by the Natural History Museum and the National Museums of Scotland in 1989.

   

Softback. 72 pages. 1989. Very good condition. Beautiful colour photographs throughout.
