wood ward ranch[edit]

the wood ward ranch is a great place i went there and it has awsome rocks!!!!!

Image[edit]

The image is wonderful but I am wondering how to tell moss agate from tree agate. What is the difference? Boris B 04:58, 21 July 2007 (UTC)

Image[edit]

Wikipedia needs to get hold of a different photo of "polished agates of various colors". At least half of the agates shown in the current version of that photo are of various colors because they've been dyed -- and blatantly, too. It's like illustrating a discussion of different types and textures of human hair with a photo of rainbow-colored dynel wigs. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 69.203.146.16 (talk) 06:00, 29 December 2008 (UTC)

Removed it - the image page states they were dyed. Don't need phoney pics. Vsmith (talk) 14:24, 29 December 2008 (UTC)

Current ?[edit]

I notice that text on formation is lifted from the Encyclopedia Brittanica of 1910. Perhaps a SME could review the geology portion for accuracy —Preceding unsigned comment added by Freesesj (talkcontribs) 15:28, 27 November 2010 (UTC)

3d gallery[edit]

I've removed the recently added 3d gallery of agate slabs. I don't see the need for more images, especially in 3d of polished slabs. If we need 3d it surely would be for something with "depth" rather than a flat slab. Vsmith (talk) 23:43, 1 March 2012 (UTC)

if you can see the 3D you will see that we can see inside the rock, because it's a slab it permits light to go through well. To see the 3D you need to cross your eyes till you see 3 images, and than you need to focus on the middle image.
