This is a very nice quality Ellensburg Blue nodule. All three photos are of the same stone taken from pretty much the same angle. We decided to polish this amazing gem as whole nodule. The color is exceptional.....and this is very possibly the largest cut and polished Ellensburg Blue Agate of this quality in existence.
Original weight was 547.75 carats. With matrix removed it  weighed 363.65 carats.  Final polished weight 313.95 carats.This stone has been sold.
