I just finished this one and it is my favorite cab (so far). It is a Piranha (Brazilian) Agate. It is 4-1/4" tall.

Lovely stone Bob, that drewzy is really something.

It takes a bit of effort( bricks skill ) to get a bezel so even.

I like Piranha as a cutting rough, especially when it shows us the tube variation.

Nice stone.

Stu,
No it isn't the largest one that I have made. The largest is over 6" across.
