Someone posted this on Reddit in the Mineral Porn Section and it truly is the most awesome moss agate I can remember seeing

Amazing, the one reason I started cutting cabs. Looks like a Thomas Kincade piece, except the artist was the lapidary who captured it and mother Earth. Thanks for sharing.
Edit: just be fair could be a Bob Ross and many others.

Very nice piece. Looks like some of the material that has been coming out of Indonesia over the past few years.

Stephen, I am once again amazed by the fact that you know everything.
I did a little research.
That agate is indeed Indonesian, supplied by #Indonesia Amazing Geologist

I wish I could take credit for doing intensive research to spot that one, but it's impossible not to become familiar with Indonesian material if you're in the right facebook groups. There are some very prolific Indonesian sellers on FB (or at least used to be, I have drifted out of many of the general selling groups), both in public listings and direct messages. There is some amazing stuff from there, green and purple chalcedonies, opals, agates, chrysopal, jaspers, even gem silica, but lots and lots of dyed stones and glass too, and on top of that many of the sellers advertise with pictures of others' stones and what you get may or may not be of similar quality.

Two amazings in the one post! An incredible picture and Barbra said 'porn'. :wink: :smt058

That really is an incredible cab, kudos to the cutter for reading the rough.
