Here are some rough and finished examples of what i call Red Hill agate. I found it in March of 2011 and went back and pulled out about 300 pounds in May of 2011. I will plan to explore it a little more this weekend and hope to bring back a good piece limb i dug out last time and left it. Lets hope its still there.

Generally what i collected were limbs and partial limbs. These look similar to petrifid wood in rough, but have bends to the limbs that look more marine in origin. They are like most silica replaced fossil or cast of agate. The good gem limbs can still have pitting and tubes . As well it an be heavily fractured because of the geology of the area.

Allot tend to have this profile elongated, or semi flat shape. With the centers more bulbous and the ends more flat.

Here is a different gem limb but very similar, notice the fractures and pitting. But the agate is very hard, paint.

And here are several cabochon examples from many different pieces. I cut for the pure hearts and pieces with no to little pitting. Some show fractures but the pieces are all very stable and very nice. Thanks for taking a look.

That is a very well healed fracture, like a paint line.

Notice the tubes, every piece will have them, weather seal and gemmy like this one, or open like other examples.
