Daniel Bennett's Photo Gallery

NF7-J61Chalcedony (Var: Agate)

Montana, USA

Field of View: 4 inches
Largest Crystal Size: 2.5 cm

these are from the elkhorn mountain volcanics of western Montana. the biggest one is about an inch. about half of them are tumbled and polished. the other half left rough. my favorites is the orange colored ones. another color from there I like not shown is a nice contrasting blue and black banded agate. most of these are small but I have found a few fist sized one. usually with a lot of fracturing.

G7W-4TTQuartz

Montana, USA

Field of View: 12 mm

curious flat topped quartz formation from western Montana. the exact location is yet to be disclosed.the small one at lower right resembles pictures of the Babel tower. my best guess is chlorite gives the top crystal a greenish color.
