LAS170rs 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. This small nodule has a quartz section surrounded by exceptional banding in shades of orange and white. This is a "waterwashed" Laker, presumably having been tumbled in the sand and waves of a beach shore as it is exceptionally naturally tumbled.

Approx.: 1.5" x 1.25" x 1.25"


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.
