Estimating the Value of Joe Love Lamps
Most Joe Love Lamp come with a Certificate of Authenticity. Joe Love Lamps are a true collector's dream with an intrinsic value far beyond Joe's asking prices. To illustrate this, here are a few links to other websites that sell Montana Agate as either individual polished/unpolished stones or made into jewelry: (Montana Agate Cabs)
As you can see finished and polished Montana Agate can be very expensive, depending on color, visible scenes in the stone, and how it is used. Montana Agate is classified as a semi-precious Gemstone and has a very high hardness to it. The stone is difficult to cut, shape and polish - but when it is finished, it will last many generations with no loss of quality. In fact - touching the stone "over and over" adds to the polish and clarity "and value".
To further illustrate this, take a look at a few close-ups of some of the stones Joe Love has used to create of his wonderful lamps: (click on thumbnails for larger images)
These are just a few examples of scenes found in Joe Love Lamps. The variety of colors and scenes in the lamps are extraordinary and unique. Joe selected stones to accent each other and bring beauty to his lamps.
