This is an agate I've been carrying with me ever since I found it back in about 1960 in the roots of a large uprooted tree in New Hope, Minnesota.  I was about 6 years old at the time and on my way to swimming lessons.  I was in a bathing suit, no pockets, so I hid it in the roots and worried about it the whole time I was at the lake.  It is still one of my most favorite treasures. 

It is about 2 inches in diameter.
