Summerville Agate

By Terry and Susan Brown

On the club's field trip to collect Summerville Agate in June 2015, Terry stumbled across this beautiful display piece...completely by accident.

During a break, Terry took the dog for a walk through the tall grass near the parking area (a good 100 yards away from the collection area). He stepped on a rock, and when he looked down, he saw the exposed "eye" on the top.

This is the cleaned up specimen:

Pretty nice isn't it?  Well this is what it looks like after he polished it...

One of the prettiest pieces of Summerville Agate you'll ever see...and a great story too.
