Very nice!

 Edited to add: keep posting! I love seeing what others find. I don’t post much These days because I don’t get out like I used to and my club’s shop is closed due to covid, but if things ever get back to something resembling normal I’ll Be back to posting up stuff I find and stuff I make.

Very nice finds. I look forward to more photos. Are those from the Lake Superior area?

 Thank you for all the compliments, everyone! :D

Yes, Morlock these are Lake Superiors that I found near where I live.

Bob - I tumbled a batch a long time ago but ended up having some damage done to the basement due to a small flood. It has been a while but as soon as I get my shop up and running again I will be doing more lapidary work: I am still learning about cutting and faceting.

I was taking practice shots indoors with a new camera lens and this agate was one that turned out good. It is called a whorl or hurricane Lake Superior agate for the the way the banding formed:
