Tiny Lake Superior Agates: Treasures Anyone Can Find
Book by Jack Hobart

Tiny Lake Superior Agates, Treasures Anyone can Find is a book about an unusual subject. Although it applies to Lake Superior agates, it can apply to agates of all types, since most people try to collect large agates, rather than using a computer to turn a quarter inch agate into a two foot wide "monster". The author found that including tiny agates in a collection made collecting Lake Superior agates much easier when living in California. Thousands were obtained as gifts or rescued from pails destined to be crushed and cast in acrylic souvenirs. They can even be easily found underfoot in well-traveled places to this day. Nearly half the agates in a 10,000 agate image database can be classed as small or tiny. Any that can be held between the fingers can be cut in half, polished and scanned. A collection can be mounted in small cases and kept in a shirt pocket for display. Collecting, processing and display techniques have been presented at conferences and museums. Now they are presented in book form for the first time. It is filled with closeup images of complex patterns, including many features not previously seen in agates of any size.The book includes enough text to explain the features, but the words don't get in the way of the photography. Therefore, it is a book with more pictures of complex patterns than seen in most any other agate book, in spite of tiny agate sizes. It ends with the pros and cons of tiny agates. It also includes sections placing tiny agates in perspective with large ones, examples still in host matrix, others fashioned into marbles and stunning copper agates from the Keweenaw.
