Tampa Bay Coral Specimens

We brought back many new products from the Denver Gem & Mineral Shows!  One of our new items are Tampa Bay Coral Agate Specimens.  The agate inside of the coral is formed when silica-rich ground water runs through the coral and forms over a great period of time.  The coral is approximately 38 - 35 million years old and is from the Oligocene - Miocene Era.  It is also the state rock of Florida.  A specimen of Tampa Bay Coral from the collection of Gary & Lory Maddox is featured in our 2016 Calendar of Fine Agates & Jaspers.
