Art in Stone knives by Michael Hoover. Limited Editions for Buck Collectors Club.
Natures natural creations all have their own markings from the manner of their creation.
In nearly all cases these are not flaws, rather they are natures own designs. Each stone
used has its own personality and distinct natural "markings". These are so varied that
each knife really is a one of a kind artwork with it's own distinct markings gate is a unique
natural wonder, with no two identical specimens: Each has a different pattern and color.
It occurs in various volcanic and sedimentary rocks in nearly all countries on earth.
Moroccan agates from the Atlas Mountains were first identified in the 1940’s but only
recently have they drawn the interest of collectors worldwide. The town of Sidi Rahal is
located about 60 km east of Marrakesh. The agate outcrops occur nearby in an area
approximately 40–50 km long and 5 km wide. Although the region is abundant with
these gems, it is not being worked on a commercial scale. Every day locals look for
agate to sell to gem collectors from around the world.
