Rock Collection Photos -- Post 1

As a result of owning an agate museum, I occasionally get an offer to visit rockhounds and view their agate collection. I had this opportunity while I was down state. Given the value of this collection, I don't want to provide the identity of the owner or the city in which he lives. Let's just say it is Robert who lives in southeastern Michigan. He is in his 80s and has been collecting agates, fossils, and other items his whole life. His collection is not only extensive, but he has a very large number of museum quality specimens. I especially liked his Mexican agates.

He also had a lot of Lake Superior agates. Here is just one of many groupings.
