The bulls eye patterns are formed either from a stalagmite or a stalactite - and then sliced thin to show the formations of the rings. This one is really special and has many layers of gem quality bright pink bacon banding, like what you would see inside a tree - it is a large cabochon, and would not be easy to set for a novice, because of the verrigated edges shape.

It is very rare to find slices of this material complete. The polish is very good, AAA quality specimen. Both sides are polished.

Recently I have found a great source of this AAA grade material from a mine in Argentina.There are very few mines of this AAA grade material left, which is what makes it so rare. This is a thick cut, and good for any type of setting, like bezel, prong - wire wrapping.
