Finished Agates

My first observation being the confusion that is associated with naming minerals. For example orbicular Rhyolite/ Jasper is often called Mushroom Jasper. These very hard Jaspers are well represented in the Pacific Northwest but are all members of the Chalcedony family — or call me Chert!

Snakeskin ‘AGATE ‘. certainly reflects its chalcedony properties  but is rather rare and is found in Southeastern Oregon. Technically speaking they are ‘Chert’ with an exterior that is generally gray, brown or chalky white. The interior can be pinkish in color. They remain one of my favorite ‘agates.’  Fire Agates belong to a whole new social ladder.

I will edit this page when I get some pictures of my fire agates from Arizona.
