I’m sure every geologist has been asked at some stage as to what their favourite rock would be. There would be no hesitation in picking agates as my favourite rocks. They have always intrigued me by the absolute beauty and uniqueness of each and every one of them. My parents have had several trips to Agate Creek in years gone by and Dad has an amazing collection of agates and thundereggs that I always love to look at on my visits back home. I decided to photograph a few of the polished specimens to document their beauty. Enjoy a preview of some of the most amazing rocks I’ve seen. I’d always choose an agate over a diamond any day!
