The Lake Superior agate is a type of agate stained by iron and found on the shores of Lake Superior.   Agates were formed during lava eruptions that occurred in the midwest region about a billion years ago. The stone’s predominant red color comes from iron, a major industrial mineral found extensively throughout the Iron Range region.

Lake Superior- agate hunting. One of our favorite things to do while we are in Duluth. We have found many agates and we put them around our house plants on top of the dirt. So pretty. :)
