We carry specimens from around the world and from many locations in the US.

NEW! Baker Ranch agates, sometimes called "Baker Eggs" are a "thunder egg" found about 25 miles south of Deming, New Mexico, near the Mexican border. These colorful rocks form in gas bubbles left behind from volcanic activity millions of years ago. They come in a wide variety of colors including white, black, gray-blue, pink, and red. They are strongly fluorescent and the agates glow bright green under shortwave ultraviolet light. Some of the nodules are hollow with quartz crystals lining the cavity. The mine that produced these agates is now closed and the mine site is being reclaimed. We have them both as single pieces and matched pairs. Prices range from $8 - $40.
