Rock Stop

Many wines get better with age, and the same is true for this wine stopper. Made of a thin slice of Brazilian agate (formed when silica-laden groundwater passes through air pockets in cooling lava, ) these stoppers' luminous bands of color display their many years of development. These stoppers are vibrant, rich, and polished, but still maintain some of their natural rocky exterior, making them a unique hostess gift and a stunning addition to your home bar. Designed and assembled by Anna Rabinowicz in New York.

Sold individually. Some colors enhanced.

Take a studio tour and see where these bottle stoppers were designed.

    I think this will be a perfect wedding gift for my friend, my only complaint was that it was much smaller than I had expected and for the price. Oh well, I will surely be coming back!

    Comments about AGATE BOTTLE STOPPERS:

    When I bought this I was really excited about getting it. I love geodes and have been accumulating geode collectables for years. I have to say that it works quite well for its intended purpose and is very attractive while fulfilling this purpose. The only thing I have a problem with is its size. The one I received was so incredably tiny. I normally wouldn't take off 2 stars for this reason. .so I hope this attests to how incredably small it actually is.

          Not as impressive in real life. Pretty but not worth [$]. I'm still on the fence about giving it as a gift.

                The gift wrapping was great, but the box inside was covered with dust and there was still glue from the price tag on the gift. The agate is not shiny.
