PostPosted: May 21, 2020 14:32    Post subject: Agate  

Good evening,
I am new here and come on the recommendation of a member of the Mineralienatlas with the following question:

The agate attached as picture is said to come from Mexico with the location "La Molina".
After a long search and with the help of members of the Mineral Atlas, I found that La Molina is a small hamlet south of Chihuahua, but is in no way associated with agates.

My questions to the community:
a) Does anyone know of the location of La Molina?
b) If not, is the agate presented (approximately) typical for another Mexican site?
c) Or must the agate be assigned to a completely different location / country?

I would be very grateful for your help.
greetings
Michael

Although I do not recognize this precise agate style, I am pretty sure the label should be La Mojina, which is near Flores Magon in north central Chihuahua, right in the heart of the agate belt.
