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
Fossilman: Not good Jim...

wampidy: Sitting in my underwear in front of the computer drinking cappuccino and eating brown sugar and cinnamon pop tarts. A mental image you probably could have went without but you asked. Want to go hounding, all gassed up but I gotta buy some new tires for my

wampidy: pickup before I go running around in the hills. One of my goodest tires has a bulge and all the tread is worn off of it in that spot. Tells me that I probably should have replaced it a long time ago but it is just a little wup wup.

snowmom: LOL, I did ask.. I'll be more careful next time! I expect hounding out there is a terror on tires- all those sharp rocks...

drocknut: Snowmom at least he didn't say he was naked...;)

rockpickerforever: Diane, if he said he was sitting in his underwear, most would understand that he is not naked. What's wrong with naked, anyway? ...Unless that's your laptop sitting in his lap, ho ho!

rockpickerforever: Ouch! Ha ha, gotta at least wear some leather chaps! How're you dune, Ed, out in that furnace they call Phoenix? Grinding and sweating? Mostly? You do what it takes...

wampidy: There was not one of the tires on my pickup good enough to replace my raggedy spare. Just went ahead and bought all four. As bad as the front tires were it is a wonder I am not laying in a ditch somewhere between here and Quartzsite.

wampidy: Sure drives nice now except for the wandering. Replaced the steering ball joints before I left for Q and they already have a bunch of slop in them. Must have been a tad bit of stress there on the trip.
