About Rough Agate
Cabochon stones may not have the same initial appeal as a cut stone, but they have just as much fire and life to them. If you are interested in creating your own one-of-a-kind piece of jewelry, you may want to consider getting some agate rough and either cabbing it yourself, or having a jeweler do so for you. A rough is another term for the raw form of a stone. Usually the inner beauty of the stone is not readily apparent, but an experienced eye can see the potential of a fire agate rough, for example. To make a necklace, bracelet, or a matched set, consider getting a rough agate lot. That way you have several stones you can choose from to make the best-matched set. Since the sellers on eBay have a large network of items, you can find a wide variety of agate rough in order to finish all sorts of projects.
