Skip an Atom Agates: The Most Unusual Lake Superior Agates
Book by Jack Hobart

Skip an Atom Agates, The Most Unusual Lake Superior Agates is a book about a rare variety of Lake Superior agate that few own or have seen. When a book can draw on an image database with thousands of their images to incorporate nearly 300 closeup images, the result can be an interesting book for all agate collectors to enjoy. The subject is compelling. Agates with unusual color and multiple crystal shapes and patterns. Their name was a guess as to their composition and no progress was made for 70 years. Then observations of hundreds of closeup squares on a large computer monitor led an expert to recognize the clues to their formation. These squares fill the front cover and 4 more pages in the book. The story is retold in one chapter. Separate chapters use large closeup images to show agates from different locations including some untouched by glacial action. Complex and unusual patterns are covered, including a mysterious form named "Ghost Agates". Ruin and breccia agates are also relatively common. The book contains enough text to introduce and explain the features, but the words don't get in the way of the photography. The goal is to make this book a fun experience.
