Tiny Lake Superior Agates Book Description

by Jack Hobart, Tiny Lake Superior Agates Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Tiny Lake Superior Agates books, Tiny Lake Superior Agates, Treasures Anyone can Find is a book about an unusual subject. Although it applies to Lake Superior agates, it can apply to agates of all types, since most people try to collect large agates, rather than using a computer to turn a quarter inch agate into a two foot wide "monster".The author found that including tiny agates in a collection made collecting Lake Superior agates much easier when living in California. Thousands were obtained as gifts or rescued from pails destined to be crushed and cast in acrylic souvenirs. They can even be easily found underfoot in well-traveled places to this day.Nearly half the agates in a 10,000 agate image database can be classed as small or tiny. Any that can be held between the fingers can be cut in half, polished and scanned. A collection can be mounted in small cases and kept in a shirt pocket for display.Collecting, processing and display techniques have been presented at conferences and museums. Now they are presented in book form for the first time. It is filled with closeup images of complex patterns, including many features not previously seen in agates of any size.The book includes enough text to explain the features, but the words don't get in the way of the photography. Therefore, it is a book with more pictures of complex patterns than seen in most any other agate book, in spite of tiny agate sizes. It ends with the pros and cons of tiny agates.It also includes sections placing tiny agates in perspective with large ones, examples still in host matrix, others fashioned into marbles and stunning copper agates from the Keeweenaw.The book is complemented by the website, mudpot.com, enabling its content to be kept up to date while sharing slideshows of similar images. The goal is to make this book a fun experience.

Lake Superior Copper Agates Book Description

by Jack Hobart, Lake Superior Copper Agates Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Lake Superior Copper Agates books, Lake Superior Copper Agates, Introducing the World's Most Spectacular Agates , the first book about these unique agates. They have only been actively collected for little more than ten years. Nearly all come from portions of three 100-year old copper mine tailings in the Keeweenaw of Northern Michigan.Not only have their agate patterns changed to pure, glittering copper, some of them even include metallic silver! In a few, individual copper bands can extend outside their host matrix by half an inch! Some appear to have agate eyes and banding that is etched in nodules of pure copper.There is so much associated mineralization, that colors and patterns are far more varied than in other Lake Superior agates. They can even include gem quality chlorastrolite, the state gemstone of Michigan.The book has 20 chapters, including agate types never seen before. Many pictures show reflections from their glittering copper regions. Even agates without visible copper have minerals, crystal structures and geodes seldom seen in other agates. There are so many eyes that its chapter on eye agates is quite small, deferring a more complete coverage to the companion book, Copper Agate Eyes.Since there are significant difference in agates from the three nearby mines, each image lists its origin as well as its dimensions.This photo-filled book includes enough text to explain the features, but the words don't get in the way of the photography. It is complemented by the website: mudpot.com, enabling its content to be kept up to date. The website also contains slideshows, a simulation of seeing copper agates for the first time and a tribute to John Perona, the miner who first discovered these agates and had them to himself for decades. The goal is to make it a fun experience.

Skip An Atom Agates Book Description

by Jack Hobart, Skip An Atom Agates Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Skip An Atom Agates books, Skip an Atom Agates, The Most Unusual Lake Superior Agates is a book about a rare variety of Lake Superior agate that few own or have seen. When a book can draw on an image database with thousands of their images to incorporate nearly 300 closeup images, the result can be an interesting book for all agate collectors to enjoy.The subject is compelling. Agates with unusual color and multiple crystal shapes and patterns. Their name was a guess as to their composition and no progress was made for 70 years. Then observations of hundreds of closeup squares on a large computer monitor led an expert to recognize the clues to their formation. These squares fill the front cover and 4 more pages in the book. The story is retold in one chapter.Separate chapters use large closeup images to show agates from different locations including some untouched by glacial action. Complex and unusual patterns are covered, including a mysterious form named "Ghost Agates". Ruin and breccia agates are also relatively common.The book contains enough text to introduce and explain the features, but the words don't get in the way of the photography. It is complemented by the website, mudpot.com, enabling its content to be kept up to date while sharing slideshows of similar images. The goal is to make this book a fun experience.
