LAS146rs Lake Superior Agate Rough Specimen


This Lake Superior Agate nodule is in its naturally found state, with a bit of mineral oil added to increase luster. It is a dark red with banding in red and pale orange, with the banding patterns ending in a drop of orange agate floating in a ring of quartz.

Approx.: 2" x 1" x 3/4"


Lake Superior Agates, commonly called Lakers, most often come from Minnesota, Michigan's Upper Peninsula, or northeastern Wisconsin. Lakers are believed to be the oldest agates and are found already displaced and partially tumbled as the result of glacier movement through the Superior trough, disrupting the agate beds and transporting them for potentially thousands of miles.
