I have quite a bit of lake superior agates if someone is interested in a trade.

3" x2"x2"  in the tumbler at the moment though..So that could change.. I have many other rocks native and non native to this area. I will take pics and then give you the link from flickr. I added some pics to the RHS1 gallery but waiting for them to get approved. If there is something other than agate, native to the northeastern part of MN you are interested in I'd be glad to go hunt for it.

If you have not noticed yet I have not seen a kind of rock that I would love to make into a sphere that is if it is big enough to do so.  I was stranded in MN last summer and brought a few specimens home that I found in a gravel pit.  I would be willing to trade for anything big enough and stable enough to make into a Sphere.  How far are you from Sturgeon Lake?  Markphoto3

One hour & 43 mins to 2hrs & 7 mins according to google...
I have a few large enough to turn into spheres. Just woke up though.. Give me coffee time and I will get photos going  and links.

Have you ever made a lava sphere.. Is that possible? Or am I wayy out there.. ?

Different types of lava are different materials. Some will shine up, others, not, but experiment with what you can get. No finished sphere is worthless. There will always be someone who thinks it is cool.
