Plume agate draws its name from the fluffy, feather-like shapes it exhibits. There are several types of plume agate, including Priday, Graveyard Point, Del Norte, West Texas, and Mexican Plume. This plume agate is from Texas; I have a cab of Texas plume agate that shares the same gold, orange, green, and white colors.
This graveyard point plume agate slab comes from Dorothy Duflo: at left, on a background, and at right, held to the sun. Dorothy's wondering what to do with it: what do you think of a belt buckle?
