|Below is a gallery of Banded Chacedony Quartz
Agates from Ojo Laguna Mexico and Rancho Agua Nueve, Mexico for
sale from John Betts - Fine Minerals in New York City, NY. Laguna Agate only
originates from Ojo Laguna, Mexico and are highly sought-after by serious
collectors for their bright colors and fortification (banded) patterns.
Technically these are labeled as "Quartz, variety Laguna Agate" because
they are composed of the mineral species Quartz, but are the variety known
as Laguna Agate. The best Laguna Agates are half nodules because they are
more substantial and represent half of the formation. Less expensive specimens
are usually sawn into thin slabs, getting many slabs from a single nodule,
but greatly reducing their value. The Laguna Agates below are all high quality
nodules - none have the thin internal cracks that common on inexpensive specimens
and greatly detract from their beauty and value. Each Laguna Agate
is polished on one face to highlight the internal patterns. To purchase mineral
specimens, go to the
Online order form.
