Whether you want to know the history of agates - how they were formed when and where, and how they have been used by humans around the world over the centuries - or you just want to see stunning photographs of all types of gorgeous agate, this is THE book. As an avid beach-comber for agates, I was thrilled to expand my knowledge of my favorite rock with such a lovely and comprehensive book. Highly recommended.

Very informative, reads like a text book. Written more for information than enjoyable reading.

Very technical but understandable and would be a great appendix in any young geologists collection. Beautiful pictures.

Over all, a good book with lots of nice agate photos and information.
Good general light reading for agate lovers or anyone interested in these beautiful gems from the Earth.
The only major item that I found un-helpful was their use of very bland, generic maps. They were so useless that it would have been better leaving them out of the book.
What were they thinking?
Looks like they needed some last minute page fillers.
Too bad, it made this look like a cheap knockoff book where as nice, informative, accurate maps would have greatly increased its appeal.

I love agates, this book gives a great deal of information.

The combination of Roger Pabian with Brian Jackson, Peter Tandy & John Cromartie present a well written book on some of the most beautiful, popular with collectors and sometimes scarce agates of the world. The first forty pages alone give the novice collector, lapidary, rock-hound, or just someone who has picked up a pretty banded rock on vacation an idea of how agates were formed, the why of the different patterns, and the names and terms needed to intelligently discuss agates. The pictures are out standing and many. The descriptions informative and to the point. The references in the back of the book present a good jumping off place to pursue further knowledge of specific types of agates. In my opinion this book was a thoroughly enjoyable and informative read, even though some of the newer types of agates were not presented.
This is a lovely book for those who are into collecting agate. Very informative.
