Re: Possible new agate discovery in Georgia
Thanks for the verification that this material looks like agate to you guys too. I am not very experienced in identifying such material I just knew that it was something different than what I usually run across in the area. Also I had never heard anyone around here mentioning any agate found locally. I hadn't really thought about the pieces being worth anything much but I guess whenever you find anything unusual like this that thought will cross your mind. We would all like to find a treasure trove I guess.
I have contacted some folks from the local Gem and Mineral Club and they have invited me over to talk to them and to cut and polish some of the samples I have. I look forward to learning a little more about all that and seeing what the pieces will look like when they are finished. I will post some photos to show how it turns out. Thanks again. Neal
