    Pictures aren't too clear, but I have never heard of gold in agate. Looks like it would be an interesting stone to slice and polish.

    To me your item in question looks more like a granite, therefore it would have a better chance of having some gold in it. If it is gold.

    Gold can show up in the strangest places however I dont see any there. I do see an agate, banding, with larger compacted clumps of quartz crystals. I reckon it'd polish up nicely. As to Lake Superior if thats where you found it.... there are a number of posts in this forum if you search them out.

    Everyone Believes they have gold buried in the back yard... small wonder so few ever look for it.
