CUSTOMER AGATE FINDS

September 2012

It has been a crazy summer. I have pictures of several customer agates below. I must admit that my camera has been having some issues with the way it is saving the image files, so I am not exactly certain which of the cards I kept with the names and dates of the agate finders go with which of the images. So I am going to give it my best shot. PLEASE send me an email to Karen@agatelady.com if I have made a mistake with any of the agate and agate finder match ups.

L Bergen (Roseville, MN) found this amethyst center filled Lake Superior agate in a construction zone.

Chris Cooper stopped by the museum showed me some incredible specimens of agate as well as greenstone, thomsonite, and other rocks. Check out the copper replacement agate that Chris found and face polished, as well as the whole nodule with intact husk that he pried out of basaltic rock out in Lake Superior off the shore of Copper Harbor. Sorry that I didn’t get a picture of Chris.

The next agate is a rare iron lace agate that formed in seams between metamorphosed iron ore layers in the Ishpeming, MI area. Most of these rare agates were found back in the 1970s. Gloria Town (Hillsdale, MI) acquired this nice specimen from Jeff Anderson at the Ishpeming show.
