        Working on about 100 cabs and some getting near the end. I could use a tumbler to polish but I prefer the old way. So these pieces need there final polish. Amazing how a scratch can make it clear to the end.
First 4 cabs are Fantasy Plume Agate, from the Graveyard Point area. Then an interesting Willow Creek cab with some pits and spots but awesome in  my book. The last piece is a nice piece of Deer Sky Jasper with red clouds. I added a second picture of the Fantasy Plume cab I liked best.

Killer willow creek, I bought a twenty pounder from the same rough as your cab, didn't notice all the pin holes prior to buying,  faced polished and it's one of my favorites. Love your Graveyard
 cabs well.

The Willow Creek is quite dramatic; the pinholes don't detract, in my opinion; the slight texture they give it enhances it, I think. Mini meteor craters on the surface of a distant moon.
