Interesting Stuff from “The Carver” Texas Agate Field

I am finding lots of sagenitic agates and sagenitic material in the nodules, geodes, and vein agates from ‘The Carver’ agate field.  When cut, the sagenitic material appears as radiating needle-like inclusions often resembling a star burst or sun flower.   So what is sagenite?  Technically, it is not a type of rock but an inclusion appearing in a rock specimen.  Sagenitic agate is a radiating needle-like structure encased in a quartz or chalcedony nodule, geode, or vein agate.

Please see the sagenite article and more photos in the complete report.
