Nevada and the Southern States (see other thread) are the next areas I'll be requesting images for.
`After these three states, I will be moving over into Wisconsin, Nebraska, and Minnesota.
We are now requesting images of material from the great states of Nevada for this thread. The images can be of rough, polished specimens, cabs, or tumbled stones. If you have any that you're willing to share, please post with a brief note on the region and its common name (if it has one.) Credit for the photo will be assigned to your name or online title (or not at all if that's your choice.)
Any material that fits under the heading agate/jasper is welcome to be posted here, even if it is from lesser known locations.
There are many places that would be readily known to people outside the state. We'd love to see samples of these. If in doubt, POST!
Now out (Aug 2013)!!!!! 2012 Agate Index: Vol 4 - Northern States: See thread in cabochon section!!!!!
Purple Agate: Definitely Nevada, probably around Henderson, Nevada. I know the collector so I'll see if I can get better information. Received confirmation from the collector Ron of Ron's Rocks. Location is Henderson, Nevada.
Christmas Agate: Black Rock Desert near Winnemucca, NV
Lowell, Can't see real well in the pic but I seem to see some of those concentric rings which would be Goldfield gem claims bullseye agate which is a highly silicified wonderstone/rhyolite so full of silica in fact so as to be pretty much agate or jasper....Mel
