Paradise Beach Attached Nodules

(Last Modified November 25, 2011)

Agate ID: agate_004
Weight 1.1oz. 1 1/2" x 1 1/8" x 7/8". Twin agates, a red and amber formed so differently in a hard basalt like base. Facinating!
Agate ID: agate_017
Weight 0.2oz. 3/4" x 3/4" x 5/8". This high powered purple agate nodule is still attached to surrounding basalt. Nicely water washed. Attached nodules are unique to Paradise beach and surrounding shorelines compared to glacier carried agates which tend not to have surrounding Basalt.
Supersize Me! Agate ID: agate_021
Weight 0.3oz (est. agate only). There's nothing more exciting then finding nature hard at work. This agate has not freed completely from surrounding Basalt. Basalt is naturally water washed, flattened on the bottom so the rock sets right.
Agate ID: agate_033
Weight 0.2oz. 7/8" x 5/8" x 1/2". No longer in my possession. Attached nodule. So nicely presented, naturally.
Agate ID: agate_036
Weight 0.2oz. 3/4" x 5/8" x 1/2". "The Ice Cream Cone". Unmatched beauty in the attached nodule class with a hard agate filled Basalt like cone.
Agate ID: agate_073
Weight 0.2oz. 5/8" x 5/8" x 1/2". "The Hot Air Balloon". Incredibly unique mostly because of the black markings. Resembles an attached nodule although the amount of basalt is very minimal.
Supersize Me! Agate ID: agate_173
Weight 0.3oz. 1" x 7/8" x 5/8". Nicely set attached nodule in basalt matrix.
Agate ID: agate_175
Weight 0.4oz. 1 1/4" x 7/8" x 5/8". Attached nodule.
Agate ID: agate_176
Weight 0.6oz. 1 1/8" x 7/8" x 7/8". Finding a nodule of this quality still attached to its host basalt is rare!
Agate ID: agate_257
Weight 13 grams.
5/8" x 7/8" x 1 1/4". Beautiful attached nodule. Good agate, nicely mounted.
