$70.00 AG200b  Here is a lovely agate from South Dakota. We're not positive of it's origin, but it is a limestone agate similar to TP Canyon and Pringle area agates. It has very nice soft Grey colors and banding surrounded by the Tan around the edge.   It measures 4 1/8" x over 3 1/4" x over 1/2" and has a shiny polish on the face.  Just nice.

Agates mostly occur as nodules in volcanic rocks or waters containing Silica in solution which is possibly derived from the decomposition of Silicates in the lava.  The Siliceous matter is deposited in regular layers resulting in the banded or striped formation.  It is very unlikely that you would ever find an exact duplicate of any type of Agate, Fairburn or other.
