This Lake Superior Agate nodule is in its naturally found state, with a bit of mineral oil added to increase luster. The partial nodule has minimal pitting on the back, banding in red and white, and crystals of quartz and amethyst in the center of the banding.

Approx.: 2" x 1.5" x 1"


Lake Superior Agates, commonly called Lakers, most often come from Minnesota, Michigan's Upper Peninsula, or northwestern 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.
