As I have increased the number of art and gem shows at which I'm exhibiting, it has become impossible to maintain a separate inventory of items to be exclusively listed on the web page. Thus, I made the decision to no longer list mineral art items for sale on this web page. Both of the agate books can be purchased below, along with calendars, coffee mugs, and tee shirts. You can purchase one of these items by clicking on the corresponding Michigan resident or non-Michigan resident link next to the desired item.
PLEASE NOTE: If you want to purchase more than one item, please send me an email to so that I can adjust the shipping charges.

NEW GITCHE GUMEE MUSEUM SHIRT
New high-end shirts are now available for sale. The graphic includes a montage of Lake Superior agate photos from my book, Agates Inside Out. The shirt is printed with a new soft-ink process. The ink does not include any plastic, so it permanently dyes the fabric. The shirts are a dirt orange color and are a high quality 6.1 ounce fabric.
The shirt is only available in adult sized. Please designate your desired size.

NEW BOOK: How to Find Agates—A New Method
Many people who came into the museum last summer asking for information about how to find agates did purchase the DVD, but had no way to play the disk while on vacation. To remedy this issue, I decided to produce a companion book to the DVD. The book is a quick-read how-to book that includes only information about how to find agates. Although it features the Lake Superior agate and some strategies relevant to beach hunting, most of the information is relevant to finding all types of agates in all locales. The book, like the DVD and the online rockhounding class, trains your eyes and brain so that the agates will find you! Included in the 56-page, 5.5x8.5 backpack size book are over 91 photos that will help you learn how to recognize rough agates in their natural environment.

DVD: How to Find Agates
The DVD has been completed and is now available. It trains your brain and eyes to recognize agate characteristics, introduces a brand new method of searching for the elusive Lake Superior agate, and suggests tactics to avoid the “pretty rock syndrome.” This 47 minute DVD has 11 scenes and includes over 750 photographs and diagrams and is narrated with background music. Much of the information is relevant to agates found elsewhere in the world.

A comprehensive agate book AGATES: INSIDE OUT.
The book was compiled after conducting over two years of research. It is similar to the first book in that it is intended to make you “think like an agate,” but is much more extensive. It is 258 pages with over 265 color photographs and diagrams. I’ve teamed up with mineral photographer, Tom Shearer. He takes pictures of rocks like no one else. The book discusses agates from around the U.S. as well as some from other countries. It also describes what agates are, how they formed, and how to look for them.
