Very near Prineville Oregon you can find where this grand plume agate once was when discovered by a fellow named, Shirts Quant. Back around the time he was born in 1915, his mother would load up the Model T with some food and water and be gone for days collecting thundereggs. In fact her nickname was "The Thunderegg Queen". Yes, the hounds were in his blood and in 1944 he discovered a long ledge of gold, black and red plumes galore with a bunch of pyrite and asked his mom to stake a claim on the area while he was gone fighting the war. I can't believe the story goes on to say he came home and found out no claim was staked and all the agate was found by someone else and completely gone. He did have the load he brought out the day he found it and pieces of it are still in his Rock Museum. He went on and discovered a bunch of big name rocks out of that holy area and is a Rock God of sorts that sent his name into rock history. Shirts Quant lives on forever with his gems around our necks to remind us. This premium slab has all the bells and whistles of the stone with red outline patterns and the black metallic Psilomelane plumes in clear agate It's like some of his first findings he took home and it ended up in his collection . This slab has some orange to boot. -WET pic.-(3"x 3"/2 oz./5mm thk) no fractures on this super collector/cutter
