State rock of Kentucky since the year 2000. I heard the name in the early 2000s but only saw one or two pieces of it and was not overly impressed. When I opened my gallery in 2003 a member of the local farmers market saw my work and introduced me to his other occupation after growing vegetables, hunting Kentucky Agate. He had been involved in Kentucky Agate hunting, cutting and polishing for decades and had an amazing collection. He introduced me to the variety of colors and patterns that exist in this one gemstone. It quickly grew into my signature gemstone. I show many, many pieces in Kentucky Agate in many different colors and patterns. I invite you to explore the beauty.
