These are the crème de la crème of polished agate geodes.  In the process of their creation all geodes want to grow up to be cut in half, finely polished, and paired.  To qualify they have to be wide enough, beautiful enough, and have a crystal vug in the center.  Only then are they placed in the competition for this classification.

Not wide enough? It becomes a single agate face.  Not pretty enough? Then it gets cut up into agate slices.  A disaster in the cut or polish?  Then they become single cut base agates. No crystal vug in the center? Then it's just a piece of solid agate / quartz.  There are many things that can happen along the way and only the best that survive the whole process are placed into this grade.

Referred to as book ends for many years they are now used for many things - such as phone holders, desktop decoration in the home or office, mantle or window ledge decoration, and generally anywhere you like to have beautiful things within view. 

The polished faces and sides really bring out the natural look of the geode matrix from the center outward and all the unique patterns that form.  The crystalline center on the face of the geode adds a sparkle and attraction to the eye that makes them far too good to be called "regular ole' book ends".    Many we know who have purchased these have confessed that they prefer to set them together for display and choose not to hold up anything with them - because they are that beautiful!
