First cut from Georgia trip

Hi all,

I broke a half day loose from a business trip this week to slog around the Georgia woods looking for agate. It was raining (this was Monday) and I got soaked! The good news is I didn't need a squirt bottle to wet the rocks, and I managed to pick up about 25 pounds of interesting stuff. I'd never collected in GA before (I'm from PA) so a big thank you to dirtslanger for helping me out with advice, directions, Etc. Here's a pic of one of the interesting ones - Brecciated chert with pink agate and druzy. Cheers!

I bet that color combo would be popular in jewelry.

Very nice stuff.  I am so glad you were able to bag a little NW Georgia goodness.
