Thats a big agate! Would you have a pic?

The value of an agate really depends on the quality of the banding. Rocks with lots of quartz aren't worth near as much as the ones with solid bands going through the whole thing.

This agate doesn't have any quartz in it. It is banded all the way through. I've been to the Two Harbors Rock Shop. This is the best big agate I've ever seen...

At LEAST $1,000 ...maybe closer to 2 to the right person. That is a top shelf laker for shore! Is it wet or did he oil it?

Yeeow, big one! Agate shop in TH does buy agates. The shop up in Beaver Bay said big agate prices have dropped off lately. There's only a couple big ones like that in TH....

I put water on the rock before I took pics of it. A very impressive agate. My uncle is taking it to Moose lake this weekend.

I think we have a Agate but if I send a pic could someone tell me for sure. It is a big one about 13" long by 5" wide by 3-4" think. Colors are pink, red, orange in a swril pattern. thing is about 5-6". Garndma gave it to my daughter since she is into Rocks big time. Thanks!

    •     ........if you are member of the LIVs. My 2nd graders think I am really smart at math as well. 
    •   No, but they wouldn't send them all to Belle Plaine where all the bleedies will take care of them, so what are we going to do? Man your pulling everything out of the old Libertarian hang book tonight.
    • Manafort was dumped quicker than a cheap date.   #pence2018
    •   No and no, I read it closely, but down here I shoot first then ask questions.                          
    •   Nice try.   You want me to rip apart your beloved Portugal?  There are hole everywhere.   First thing is first. This is a government policy, so this comes into play faster then a bullet..   " ...many of the problems stemmed not necessarily from a disagreement over the facts but a disagreement over which facts matter when it comes to interpreting the effects of decriminalisation."   Just like you Dave, only using the facts that fit your narrative.     HIV - down yes.   Due to eradicating drug dens, availability of needles, health awareness.   Deaths, over dose - yes (arguably)   Due to access of real drugs, not designer, dangerous synthetic weeds.     Homicides - yes/no Also there is no data collected for drug related homicides.       Drug users are not deemed criminals but as sick. Which immediately becomes a public expense.       -"" Goulão himself is skeptical of some aspects of marijuana reform in places like the United States, which he says can conflate medical use with recreational markets. "Sometimes I feel the promoters of this discussion are mixing things together using a lack of intellectual seriousness (Big Dave & Purple)," he said.""     This is just in 5 minutes, I'll go on doing this all day long. Leave you laying on the floor.   By the way, you just cut and paste articles. In no way way have you presented an intelligent reason why decriminalization would curb drug use.   Keep pasting,       

    • Come on Del like any good law we have to pass it to find out what is in it.
    • If you guys (Dave et al) are so "end the war on drugs" you ought to be able to say what that means.  How can you advocate something that you can't, or won't, define?    
    • You dont care about his statements on the 2nd amendment or his ties with radical mooslims as you put it?  
    •   I don't reside in his district and have no power to vote for or against him so I don't spend much of my free time thinking about him.
    •   But your OK with paying for people to sit in prison?   The reason you want to keep drugs criminalized is because they are dangerous, is it not?
