Teal or turquoiseAgate stripping guides
Fantastic quality agate stripping guides made by Perfect Europe. Brazed low profile nickel silver frame tapering to well shaped point for neat thread wrapping stocked in sizes 10 and 12, with a small selection in size 16.
This selection is of teal or turquoise blue-green agates with pale or white banding, with some variation in depth of colour and stone translucence as can be seen in the listing photos. Plain green and blue agates are listed separately.
Subject to availability guide frames can be selected in bright nickel silver, blued nickel silver (soft pewter grey) and a shinier black nickel gunsmoke finish. We specify and supply Perfect Europe agate guides with a grooved foot to sit better on round glass and carbon blanks. Struble agates with flat guide feet are listed separately.
The photographed examples are representative. Each agate stone is unique and you will receive one of generally similar colour and markings to those pictured for the metal frame size and finish selected. When a new batch of guides is received the photographs are updated if we deem it necessary to fairly represent the product.
Nickel silver guides can be blued (darkened) on request (+£3). Blueing leaves a pewter grey oxidised layer that is polished. It wears over time to an attractive antiqued patina.
