"This is very unusual! There are a few famous agates out there: the owl, the scared face... there are many approximate ones but rare to find clear well defined like that," Bowers told the Daily Mail.

Bowers says he's received many offers for the Cookie Monster agate.

"Prices can be very high. I was proposed over $10,000 by 5 different buyers," he said.
