This locality is 30 miles due North of Edinburgh and is a town famous for it's surrounding scenery and hospitable people. The agate bearing rock surrounds Perth and there are some great locationsmainly due east and south of the town
A very famous locality some 12 miles east of the town has lovely fortification agates mainly pastel shades of pink and pale blue often with complimenting centres of quartz including amethyst. The nicest of these agates are the 'flame' agates which really look like the agate is on fire with beautiful swirls of tight fortification banding rising like fire to the top of the agate. When coloured pink and red these agates are truely spectacular!
Glenfarg Agates ( Binn Hill)
A classic agate location sited 7 miles south east of Perth has some excellent variety of agate types with fortification being the main form. Pale blue colour predominates with the famous carnelian 'splash' often seen in the agates.The red splash set against the pale blue makes for a beautiful combination and it is one of our favourite types of agate , and highly collectible.
Black Hill Agates
If you travel 5 miles west-north-west of Balindean you will reach black hill which over the years has unearthed substantial agates sometimes up to 18 cm in size. Red and brown colours are common in these agates with white fortification often associated as well.
