I tumbled a batch of San Jacinto pebbles for Jeremy in the past Henry.
jasoninsd You mentioned San Jacinto River cobbles. Is that correct or did you mean to say Rio Grande river cobbles. Both Texas rivers produce Agate, with the Rio Grande Agate being much more prolific. Or is there another non-Texas Rio Grande river of which I am not familiar.
I could probably tell you where to go. It is odd that the Rio Grande type materials are way over there northeast of Houston.
You got to go there, it is safe and close to Houston.
No explanation for that one...how those materials are so far from the Rio drainage is just a mystery.
Jeremy used to find some serious wood/palm/plume/moss/banded materials along that stretch of the San Jacinto.
Most of them had that same 'bleached' out white patina like many Rio cobbles have.
He sent me some to tumble, I took some quicky photos. I wish you would collect there. I'll look on GE to see if I can find the section of the river, it still seems to be in my memory. There is some gravel pits along the river - it sure would be nice to have access to that gravel perhaps at a landscape store close by.
Jeremy sent me these, they were some of his early findings and not his best. jasoninsd - you should look up some of Jeremy's older threads. He found some of the finest agates and palms ever posted here. They were just 1 to 2 inch pebbles but amazing material.
I just looked through the flickr album...and looked up some of Jeremy's threads. Holy smokes, talk about a TON of eye candy! I even looked some of his other threads. I wish I had the equipment to take pictures like him! Most of his pictures look like they should be in a coffee table book!
I know we have some amazing hounding grounds out here in SD...but it just floors me to see such a variety of amazing material come from a stretch of river in TX!
