Weird Stones
Although matrix is our favorite stone, it's not our only one. We often make weeklong trips to the world's best agate fields at Agate Creek. If we leave the house at first light, we can be there with the camp set up, dinner in the coals, and specking for agate in the light of the setting sun . . . next to sunrise, the most perfect time to search. The morning light is sharper, and if you move into the light at that angle it shows through the stones on the ground.This page contains a few sorts of rocks that caught our fancy because they look like an image, have a nice shape, or are just downright strange. Prices are in USA dollars.
