There are many excellent books currently on the market describing banded agates, but there are few with an emphasis on the other structural varieties.There are virtually no current books with images and descriptions of the wide array of fine jaspers presently available. This book tries to fill that void with 240 pages and over 1000 color photos and diagrams describing the structural features of both Agates and Jaspers. It provides an introduction to their genesis, details of their structural characteristics, and a multitude of macro and micro photographs. It's a starting point for some of the current scientific theories of their formation, and contains references to more in-depth studies. No other variety of material offers so many combinations of patterns and spectral colors. Main index sections include: Fortification Agates, Plume Agates, Moss & Tube Agates, Sagenitic Agates, Other Agates, Jaspers, Brecciated Jasper, Orbicular Jasper, Scenic Jasper, Rhyolite, and Fossil Materials. Enjoy the complexity and beauty locked within these stones.
