   New Jersey Agates                                     Page 3

 

      Jersey agates??!!  Various forms of chalcedony are found in the Mesozoic basalts of the

     New Jersey piedmont. Probably the best known occurrences are the stream deposits

     of carnelian from the Watchung and Warren area in Somerset County. While these ain't

     Lagunas, the banded agates on these pages represent some of the more unusual and

     overlooked mineral specimens from the Garden State.
