Description: - Fire Agate Carving is the process of taking rough fire agate         

       materials and removing the chalcedony layer at a time to expose the fire

       agate limonite. These carvings can be turned into cabochons, made into

       jewelry pieces, or left as display items, it's really up to the creator of the piece.

       The fun is in uncovering if you have the possibility of a brilliant piece of fire

       agate.
