home / agates worldwide / Europe / Germany / River Nahe Region / Idar-Oberstein / Haag 2010, Heath

Motivated by the finds with the sports field construction in the Haag in the year 2009 , also in the adjacent heath in several places, where agate guidance was guessed, excavations were done. One of this proved spots was very productive in the number of nodules. However the agate layer of the nodules was only relatively thin, and that agate had often strongly torn up. With a periferic cut and some luck a desirable specimen could be won.
