Club raffle prize from today's meeting. Flame Agate that doesn't have a lot of the top red "flame" pattern, but weighs 3.88 lbs. Think we finally broke even for last year's tickets.

Thanks. Someone posted flame agate looking for an ID a while back, so since this piece was a bit different from others we have I put it up here. The matrix on this one has more black, as compared to the predominant greens in others. Matrix on this also maybe a bit harder.

Great rock Vince! My favorite flame is the red and black. I think I still have a few slabs stashed somewhere around here. Pretty hard to come by. A person almost doesn't want to cut it up.

Too late, Bob. Have "tester" cabs in progress from three different areas of the rough. Wasn't sure how this matrix would polish, so the first one was half-and-half matrix/clear. Will post pics when the springtime chores around here allow me to finish them.

The last red and black flame cab I made was backed with Basanite and had quite a bit of really small pitting. I can live with the pitting. It is still kicking around on my bench waiting to be mounted.......Springtime is a few months off up here yet. Dealing with a mild case of 'cabin fever'  hide
