For its size, I have never seen a finer specimen of agatized coral from the Withlacoochee River that forms the border between Georgia and Florida.  This specimen was collected on the Georgia side in Lowndes County in the 1980's by Charlie Sutliff.  It is sawn roughly in half, though one half has a deeper cavity than the other.  It has the customary botryoidal agate, but has stalactic forms as well.  There is none of the fine silica coating that ruins the luster of many specimens from the river.  This one is highly lustrous and translucent, sunlight really sets it off.  The condition is perfect, not even a micro ding.  Size of a small football.  The larger, deeper half measures 8.5 x 5 x 4 inches (21.6 x 12.7 x 10.1 cm) and the smaller half measures 8.5 x 5 x 3.25 inches (21.6 x 12.7 x 8.2 cm).  Must be seen to fully appreciate.  Sold as a pair only.  Weighs almost 9 pounds, both halves.
