Agate (half geode)
description: <p style="text-align: justify;">LOCALITY: Agate Creek, Queensland, Australia <br /><br />10" across</p> <p style="text-align: justify;"> </p> <p style="text-align: justify;">Agate Creek is an important agate field in far northern Queensland.  The Agate Creek field is unsurpassed in terms of the permutations and combinations of colors, banding patterns and banding widths observed in the thousands of agate specimens field collected there.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;"> </p> <p style="text-align: justify;">Agatized geodes from Agate Creek are relatively small compared with agate geodes from southern Brazil. This agate half is significant because it is possibly the largest agate half that Agate Creek has produced.  It is at least ten times larger than any other Agate Creek piece that I have ever seen or handled.  </p> <p style="text-align: justify;"> </p> <p style="text-align: justify;">This fine agate was bought from a private collector in Melbourne during 2015.  It was later traded out to Robert Sielecki for his sub-collection of fine Australian mineral specimens. </p> <p style="text-align: justify;"> </p> <p style="text-align: justify;">Photo by Matthew Webb of Melbourne, Victoria, Australia</p> <p style="text-align: justify;"> </p> <p style="text-align: justify;"> </p>
