Nice one OV
Did you just find it, or have had it?
They are from my dad's collection, he is downsizing. He said do something with them, identify, learn.
I don't know what particular kind of agate it is. Blood....etc.

As far as agate is concerned, carnelian is relatively common throughout the Willamette River drainage. I bought a collection from an older couple years ago. About 3000 lbs of carnelian from creeks near Cottage Grove. Find some whenever I fish the local gravel bar near Harrisburg.

Thank you for your confirmation, gunsil. I am fairly sure it is also for I have some in my rock collection that looks like it.
