|Both polished and unpolished Sweetwater agates found in the northern|
Granite Mountains recovered by Wayne Sutherland and the GemHunter.
Some years ago, my field assistant and I were driving along the northern edge of the Granite Mountains in central Wyoming, on a poorly used two-track trail that looked as if the last person to use it was Ward Bond with his Wagon Train. Wayne and I had been drinking coffee all morning, and made a pit stop. We climbed out of the off-road truck rented from the University of Wyoming (we were working on a gemstone project for the Wyoming Geological Survey) and decided to water down some sagebrush. I looked down, and saw a Sweetwater agate!
What a mystery, but it is just one of many such geology mysteries in Wyoming.

So, what does the Bible say about Quartz?
