Last year was my first year rockhunting while dipnetting Kenai beach. Fun stuff.
Luckily I was with a group that had been doing so for years and could tell an agate from a wannabe agate. Finally I brought one up and said this HAS to be one, right? And right I was. About one inch square.
Not sure I'll run into my agate experts again this year, so I thought I'd ask if anyone had a web site or two to help the unexperienced see an agate from a wannabe. I googled the heck out of it and came up with virtually nothing except stones that were already polished, or cut - no help there.
