CUSTOMER AGATE FINDS

February 2009

With our mountains of snow, agate hunting is at least a couple of months away. If I were to guess, unless there is a massive thaw, I don’t think anyone will be rockhounding our beaches until at least late April, if not May.

Smoky Quartz Laker

So again to appease all you agate fans, I have included photos of a couple of lakers I have for sale. The first is a nice sized laker with smoky quartz fill. The outer bands are translucent carnelian. Along the top, there are some terrific candy stripe bands that very likely will exhibit a shadow if polished. The center, which is exposed at one end, shows some exquisite smoky quartz crystals. It weighs a little over 5.5 ounces and is 2.5” x 2.25” x 1.5”.

The other laker is a peeler depicting differential erosion of the various bands. The bottom of the agate is translucent carnelian. The upper half that exhibits the peeler bands is more opaque with paint stone colors of orange, yellow, and tan. Concentric banding pops out at various places, including one whole end of the specimen. It weighs just under 7 ounces and is 2.5” x 2.25” x 1.625”.

Peeler Laker

If anyone is interested in purchasing either of these Lake Superior agates, the retail cost is $40 each plus $5 s/h and sales tax if applicable. Give me a call at 906-494-2590 or send an email to karen @ agatelady.com if you are interested.
