home / agates worldwide / Europe / Germany / Northrhine-Westfalia / Kleve

In the area of Kleve there are several gravel pits, where agates from the Saar-Nahe-Senke can be found. In addition to agate finds that are difficult to obtaine to its origin due to a  too general pattern - there are finds again and again where it is possible to identify the origin. One sample is this specimen (11) - with polygonal agate structures representing pseudomorphs after bladed minerals with the filling of the intervening spaces with agate -that certainly comes from Rhinehessia.
