Snakeskin Agate Tumblestones

Snakeskin Agate tumblestones are an interesting orangey red Agate with an unusual ‘crackled’ pattern on the surface. They really are a stone we don’t see a lot of sold in the UK.

Currently, we only have seven of these in stock, and have no plans to get any more. If you like them, I’d recommend grabbing one now while we have it in stock!

 

This is sometimes sold as ‘Fire Agate’, but this is incorrect. These are pieces of red Agate or Carnelian that have been heated and cooled to produce a crackled effect.

The pictures you see here are representative of the products and are usually not the exact item you will receive. Where various grades are available we do try to photograph each grade – but some photographs are still on their way!

What are tumblestones?

Tumblestones are stones that have been put in spinning barrels with an abrasive compound for weeks or months. This slowly rounds off the rough rock and corners – the stones are then cleaned, and placed with a less abrasive grit. This happens several times until the stones are placed into a barrel with a polishing compound for their final polish.
