home / agates worldwide / Northamerica / USA / New Mexico / Hermanas / Baker Ranch (Baker Egg Mine)

The agates from The Baker Ranch are very famous because of their finelined pattern and their richness of colours. Their pattern is very similar to the pattern of the best mexican agates from Chihuahua - but Baker Ranch agates are Lithophysae (Thundereggs). First class collectors items are showing a harmony between excellent finelined fortification-pattern and colours between yellow, brown, pink and red. Baker Ranch agates are famous for their chromatographies (e.g. the colorization is independent to the fortification-banding). The awesome perlite-matrix - formed by spherical structures - is a further addition to the beauty of this material.”water-level-structures” do occur at this place too. Pseudomorphical formations after acicular crystal-structures are seldom found.
