Agate Collecting with Dutes is Available Online!

After a year in the making, the new guide Agate Collecting with Dutes: Your Guide to Finding Agates in Haida Gwaii is now available to purchase at www.crystalcabingallery.com.

This guide, which summarizes Dutes’ life’s knowledge of agates and stone collecting in the lush islands of Haida Gwaii, will help you to:

  • Prepare for your next beachcombing adventure
  • Identify agates and learn how they are formed
  • Learn about the islands’ geological formation
  • Compare agates with other types of chalcedony
  • Connect to the metaphysical properties of agates

“Thank you to everyone who has helped to make this possible,” says Dutes.

Here are a few photos of Dutes' first look at the book!
