home / agates worldwide / Northamerica / USA / Oregon / Priday Ranch, moss bed

Mossy-like-agate as structural variant shows up in many thundereggs of the Priday Ranch. There is however also a finding layer (“bed”) in that the lithophysae is mainly with mossy-like-agate filled. This mossy-like-agate is also quite typically formed: often the mossy-like-agate is forming structures like “wisps of hair” (sometimes called “like curtains”) and run partly parallel trough the stone - not compellingly straight-lined, often in curves. The colouring of these structures are reaching from green over yellow up to an intensive red. If the colouring changes in the pattern it does it often in complete domains.
