Description

Also famous besides the Erzgebirge ore minerals and their companions are the vein agates from Halsbach near Halsbrücke, Freiberg. Referenced as "Korallenachat" (coral agate) these specimens have become real classics. Note, that the term coral agate refers to the habit, not the formation (no "agatized" corals as in the USA for instance). This specimen shows the typical banding with nice reddish colours contrasting to white quartz/chalcedony. Specimen is rough, not cut or polished.
