It turns out, you can purchase authentic yet inexpensive agate slices online. With a dab of water resistant super glue, they’ll adhere to just about anything. If you are like me and accidentally get a visible smudge of glue on the glass, worry not! A bit of goo gone and a glass friendly cloth will help remove the stick. Be patient and enjoy the process…that’s a gift made with love!
