Coyamito Agate Specimens & WGS Show

Coyamito Agate Specimens

     New selections of Coyamito Agate Specimens are available on our website.  Coyamito Agate is a nodular banded agate found about thirty miles north of the Laguna Agate deposits in Chihuahua, Mexico. It is found in multiple deposits, most of which are located on the Coyamito Ranch. Forty years ago, agate was collected and mined on the Coyamito Ranch, La Gregoria Ranch, El Agata Ranch and probably the El Sueco area and sold as Coyamito Agate. This resulted in a variety of agate referred to as Coyamito. However, most of the strongly colored agates come from two areas on the Coyamito Ranch. The two areas on the Coyamito Ranch that have agate deposits are called Los Alamos and La Sonoreña.  Most Coyamito nodules are hollow and the color strength is in the outside banding.
