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.

Dry Head Agates are from the Bighorn Canyon area of Montana.  The banding colors are usually bright orange with some white or pink bands on charcoal, light gray, whitish oranges or greenish matrix.  Dry Head Agates are very rare and no longer available as the mining area is now part of a wild horse refuge.  Dry Head Agates may be geologically similar to the Teepee Canyon and Fairburn Agates of the Black Hills area.
