LAKE SUPERIOR AGATE
Agates are a gemstone with a hardness of 7; harder than Basalt or Rhyolite. Beautiful banding, varied patterns, and eye-catching colors unique to each agate are created by quartz with small amounts of different elements. Red bands are the result of the rusting of iron within the agate when exposed to oxygen. These gemstones can be found on many Lake Superior beaches throughout the states of Michigan, Wisconsin, and Minnesota. Properties: Good for security, strength, to raise energy and to enhance personal courage and calming.
Amethyst is type of quartz with a trigonal crystal structure. On the hardness scale it is comparable to agates with a hardness of 7. It is the birth stone of February and thought to bring peaceful dreams that extend into the waking world. The color comes from iron impurities in the quartz and can range from lavender to dark purple.
