World Class Gallery You have entered the World Agate gallery.  This gallery contains interesting agates from around the world   Most have been machine tumbled to bring out the hidden beauty.  Some like Chinese agates  have been naturally tumbled in Rivers.  I will be adding to this collection as I acquire and polish new agates.  This is only a sample of the thousands of types of agates which are found around the world.  There are several wonderful books featuring agates from around the world.  Many of the agates shown here are not included in those books.  Collecting agates from around the world is great fun.  It is fascinating to notice the differences between agates not only within one location but also from one location to another.  The varieties seem endless.  So here are a few of my favorites.    Please enjoy.

Indonesia Blue Agate

Indonesia Blue Agate often have pink banding in the center. This one shows a strong cloud like patterns on the outside.

Snake Skin Agate from Eastern Oregon

This agate is found with a cross hatch pattern and heavily oxidized. Tumbling with small round agates removes the oxidation and the patterns and leaves behind a naturally sculptured shape.

Saginite from Oregon near the Idaho Border

These agates are often plain. But sometimes you find fabulous saginite sprays. This one looks very much like crystals in Quartz.

Saginite from Oregon near the Idaho Border

This is the top side of the previous agate where the saginite sprays coming up through the agate nodule. Tumbling allows you to see all sides of a 3 dimensional crystal. The rough surface of these agates often prevents you from seeing the saginite before polishing.

Eastern Oregon Plume Agate

This Oregon Plume Agate has both green and gray plumes. Tumbling this 20 ounce specimen allows one to see a three dimensional view around the agate.

Gray and White Laguna Agate Northern Mexico

Tumbling can turn a low grade Laguna agate into something special. The rough Laguna agate requires a lot of time in first grind.

Although these agates are limited in color to white and clear, the shadow-banding parallax effect is so pronounced that these agates are spectacular to look at.

Brazilian Beach Agate
