Mt Somers Station Agates

Agates on Mt Somers Station, inland Canterbury, come from several different localities on the farm.  The agates from each locality are quite different from each other.  However, agates from a different locality on the farm can be found out of place in another locality through alluvial action from past glaciation, river movement, farming and even depositing from moa bird crops.
