For many years this agate was examined and marvelled at by my younger eyes. We thought it sure that it would always remain a mystery. Uncut and un-fathomed. It was found by my Dad in either 1993, or 1994. I can remember his excitement during removal of it from the earth and gravel in the central area of the quarry. It showed grey-blue banding with brown and orange  from the outset. Generally large Barras agates are grey-blue with segregation banding prevalent.  This is not true as regards this stone. The typically obvious "tube of escape" is highly visible. Thanks to Dave Hudson, who cut and polished this stone in exquisite quality.
