Wallaroo Agate: Another amazing and beautiful stone emerges from Australia. In the mining world whoever discovers a completely new stone can choose its name. We know this miner personally, and he described his enthusiasm when he found this beauty. It was a display of wild exuberance. Certainly, this was appropriate given that he had found such an incredible stone. This beauty has a background of soft lavender and grey overlaid with colors of orange, pink, white, and black in differing patterns and movements. An oval pocket of white Agate rimmed with flames of orange and red. One side is edged with a band of gold capped with olive and sienna. It would be impossible to put into words the many surreal variations.
