Cheetah Agate

Cheetah agate is a fairly recent mineral discovery from Brazil. This agate is a by-product of an Apatite mining operation. Cheetah Agate is found in seams with Apatite that is being mined in Brazil. Its color and pattern are the reason it is called Cheetah Agate. These extraordinary agates have a great display of blackish dendrites (Blue Apatite) against a background of orange chiffon, with yellow. Only a few tons of this exciting new find were imported into the country last year. It is not known if there will be any more available. This is a very solid Agate and the colors are vibrant with the pattern seeming to float in a colorful Agate. This material is a very hard agate and takes a highly reflective polish with Cerium Oxide on soft leather.
