A 1920s agate specimen ring, featuring an very fine Priday plume agate cabochon. This agate has an earthen color at its base, that is interrupted by a visual fissure that reads like a root or a nexus— two large fan-like plumes grow or emerge from this point, branching out in pink, red, black, orange, lavender and brown within the translucent chalcedony field. I see a pair of fruit trees, or an eruption. The agate is held in a pillowy step bezel that is mounted atop a split shoulder shank. A small fleur de lis detail embellishes each shoulder. This is a striking ring, well suited to both men and women.
