|Welcome to Agate
Our mission is to:
Connect as many agate hunter
enthusiasts together as possible via the web!
Many of you love prospecting and
hunting for agates, rocks and crystals of all kinds. We, Fred and I, at Agate
Hunter, want to extend a warm welcome to our agate/rock/mineral
All of us love the outdoors and wish to
share our treasures with each other as a wonderful way to forget our
worries and to look for the good things in life.
This website will focus on creating an
agate community with stories and photos of great finds, as well as
current history as to the origin and development of agates, especially
dwelling on the creation of fairburn and lake superior agates. In addition, we will work
with rock show developers to keep a current list of shows and their
locations, as well as dates and times for exhibitors and visitors.
Lake superior as well as other agate
types will be added as an enhancement to the content of the site, as the
I, Jennie, am a confirmed ebay nut, I have to
check each week to see what awesome fairburn agates are for sale, and
yes, this is a expensive habit at times, but one that I love. My
fairburn collection is large, with many prime specimens collected over
the last several years. Please see the fairburn and lake superior agate pages for additional
photos of our collections.
We will be creating a newsletter, to
keep rock hounds, agate hunters, crystal keepers and rock lovers
informed as to the latest developments in new areas to hunt as well as
what is new in "rock lovers news". If you want to be added to
the newsletter list, please send a request to the email address:
You will see lots of interesting
characters on this site, and you are welcome to send photos and
interesting tidbits of information on your agate finds!
Please feel free to join our community.
We welcome fellow agate, mineral, crystal and rock hunters and hope that you enjoy our site.
We hope that this website can be used as a means to extend our friendships with you and
that have been "bitten by the agate/rockhound/mineral collector bug"!
Fred, Agate Hunter Expert!
Fred is pictured with his favorite
"ole Bonnie" which rolled over 200,000 miles in the summer of 2003.
Fred and Bonnie spent many miles traveling the western states in the
last couple years...
Fred's agate hunting partner is me,
Jennie, I guess I can understand why he always beats me with finding the
best fairburns, and lake superior agates... It MUST be his hat, at
least I feel better if I think this way... Rather than he is a better
prospector than I am!
Fred and I, have been agate hunters as
well as fossil hunters for years. Fred has found not only fairburns in
South Dakota, but also, stone tools which are his favorite, many which
are fairburns as well as prairie agates. Please see the pages for stone
tools, and he will illustrate how you can tell if your special find was
really an artifact and worth so much more!
