Balmorhea Blue Agate



Product Description

Balmorhea was mapped out in 1906 with the town's name being an amalgamation of Balcom, Morrow, and Rhea, the surnames of its founders. The Original inhabitants of the area were the Mascalero Apache Indians and they certainly were attracted by the San Solomon Springs located at Balmorhea State Park. It supplies 26 million gallons of water per day to area farmers. The picturesque canal flows through the middle of the town carrying water to 10,000 acres of farmland. Water is stored at Balmorhea Lake, a 600 acre reservoir which is stocked with Bass, Catfish and Crappie. Okay, I have confirmed this is the blue agate they find now and then at the lake. Quite a rare stone indeed.  This is a top shelf seam agate that has been prospected before with no luck finding the source with a small piece found now and then. What a lost gem, for now.-WET pic.-(3"x1"/1.2 oz./6mm thk) no fractures>>>great cutter
