Got a little surprise in the mail the other day from John ( Thunder69). He was nice enough to send me some of his fine Mississippi Agate specimens for my type collection. Absolutely beautiful and very interesting agate!. I didn't have any in my collection either. John, thank you so much and if I can ever help you out with something you need from stuff I post let me know. Here are a couple of pics....Mel
Tumbled specimens. Pic does not do them justice at all.
mr.mohs: when in doubt-- shout it out! mostly™
