Our newest Lake Superior agate! Mark bought me this agate after days of hearing me say how much I loved it:) Mark also gave me an amazing laker covered with eyes for X-Mas... I'll be photographing and posting it soon.
Agate - Agate is one of the world’s most common stones, but don’t let its common occurrence lead you to believe it is anything less than special! This little gem is found all over the world. The main areas include Africa, Asia, Brazil, Egypt, Germany, India, Italy, Mexico, Nepal, and the USA. The name Agate comes from the river Achetes in Sicily, where it was first noted in ancient times. Agates have been discovered with Neolithic artifacts and were used before 3000 BC. No doubt, it is because of their rich colors and striking beauty that they were used for jewelry making in ancient India.
