One does not often expect to see such colors in agate - lavender purple, yellow patterns, then fading into bluish-white!  There is a raised crater in the center of the stone, with a sharp rim that seems to extend above the stone's surface. On top of all of this, dots of stronger pigment float like distant balloons. Wow!
