I cut the first cab out of material I mined out of the North Cady Mountains in California. It was named Top Notch Agate by the discoverer because the vein was found at the top notch of the mountain :)
Thank you for looking and your kind comments everyone.

I started my whole hobby with 3 of these types of opal jars. If you are careful you should be able to get many cabs out of a jar. You will have to study each piece to see how to cut it effectively to get a stone out of it, but with careful thought you should do well.

Let me start of with this....I was a Diamond Pacific client for about 10 years before I became an Authorized DP Dealer. I became a DP Dealer because their customer service really impressed me. I had a product fail, I called their 800 number MAD AND BOTHERED! The person who answered was kind and courteous, they let me explain the issue with the utmost patients. They asked me to return the item and a few days later they sent me a new one. No questions asked.
Diamond Pacific is an innovator in lapidary  products and stands by their machines. I have been using my Genie in a production mode for over 10 years with no problems. I use DP Nova and Galaxy wheels with exteermely good good return for my investment.

From what I understand, the Leather's Ranch Plume Agate deposit was somewhere in Oregon but the deposit is depleted and gone.

So I found an interesting slab of a lavender plume agate this past spring. I had no idea what it was or where it was from. I posted it on Facebook and one of our members here, Kristi Overturf Stutt, directed me to Mel's post of Leather's Ranch Plume Agate. The slab I have looks like it could have came off the same rock!! Killer material. Here is the cab I cut
