I started to collect agate in 2000. To begin with, I polished them by hand.
However, after meeting István Ecsédi ,in 2001, I have improved the cutting and polishing technic enormously.This is due to his advise and expertise and the use of latest machinery.Most of the agate were collected in Hungary, from the mountains of Mátra and Zemplén.
In the volcanic mountain range of Hungary, there are many type of agate, calcedon,jasper ,rock-crystal,.These minerals can be found on the surface or bring them to light with little work.
Sometimes, we can only see the beauty of an ugly agate ,when we cut it with diamond cutter and polish it in 5-6 steps.
