Please view the photographs; they are part of the description.
CONDITION: Very small chip to the inside rim of top piece. Chip to butterfly and chip to side area that is dark - see last two photos. These two chips are hard to see, and can best be detected by feel, not by looking. There are no cracks in the body - what appears as a crack is a natural line in the stone itself.
DIMENSIONS: 1 1/2 inches x 2 1/2 inches wide x 3 1/4 deep.
WEIGHT: 5 ounces.
Chinese agate carved covered box - 3 ¼” x 2 ½” x 1 ½”
