NOTE: The price values listed on this page are "top dollar" estimates. Cabochon prices vary depending on country and the world market. We price our agates at approximately 'one quarter' of the listed gemstone value. Our special handpicked lots come direct to us from our miner amigos who have worked with us on a semi-exclusive basis for the past 6 years. Their talent and ability to bring the most out of every stone they touch gives them the distinction of being some of the top polishers in the town of Calvillo and México..
