I was stationed in Egypt for a year and did some rock collecting. I have three cigar boxes of what I believe to be Agates. Here is one of the better stones,.... feedback appreciated.

looks like agate for sure. Could be a clever glass imitation; but why bother...very probable it is a pretty agate. Nice.

I have three boxes full of nice stones, going to get a rock polisher and see if I can clean them up. These were gathered northeast of Cairo (Abu Hammed). This area was known as the "Land of Goshen" where Moses led the exodus..... real cool history.
