There is a particular species of agate found at Kintyre, being generally found in blue and lilac hues, where the outer layers of the stone appear almost as pure chalcedony, but the centre consists of darker globules occasionally containing fortification patterns. This is the largest example I have yet seen. I picked it up in the late September of 2015, from shingle bands mostly buried in sand. I love the colours and the subtlety of the soft patterns within. It's one of my favourite agates of all time (yes, even with the cracks!) Being cut to avoid even worse fractures, the other half was incomplete, yet it showed slightly more distinct central banding. It was given as a present.
