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.

A word to the wise..........Gentlemen, do not bring issues from the politics forum to the regular forum, if you do you are violating both the rules of the politics forum and our regular forum and there will be consequences if it continues and I do not mean for a few days or weeks either.
