A Tiny Lake Superior Agate and Other Rocks

TGIF! I really like my new “rock picking” hobby. Today, I found a tiny piece(?) of an agate, and continued to grow my rock collection.

the red banding is rust!

I have found lots of basalt (including ophitic, diabase, gabbro, and vesicular). I’d love to find basalt with pipe vesicles but I’m not sure what my odds of that would be. I have also found some pretty granite, but I’d like to pay more attention to these beautiful rocks in upcoming outings.
