Geo-RoadTrip 2013: Chasing Agate

Let's get started with the breakdown of Geo-RoadTrip 2013!  Minnesota's official gemstone is Lake Superior Agate.  One of the best places to get a look at some is at Moose Lake, MN which dubs itself the "Agate Capital of the World"!

And if you ever find yourself in Moose Lake, like we did during our trip, you will want to stop by the Moose Lake Agate and Geological Center at Moose Lake State Park.  Here's a look at a few of the many specimens they have on display:

And not too far from the Center you can see a specimen that is world's largest specimen on record at the First National Bank of Moose Lake:

Video coming soon!
