I had to cut it

Recommended Posts

One of my earliest and favorite specimens. Always thought it looked like a petrified bone. I’m thinking agate. Hope I didn’t do something I shouldn’t have. I can’t wait to polish it!

That is an awesome agate brother! Did you cut it with a tile saw?

I think it is a petrified mollusk of some type no? Looks like a petrified snail. 

Did you get your tumbler and grit yet?

Reminds me of a stalagmite or stalactite from a cavern.

That is exactly what I was thinking.

Nice cut, if you have a saw then by all means cut away and enjoy polishing. To me that's what it's about getting to the inside and see what's going on!
