The Lake Superior agate is a type of agate stained by iron and found on the shores of Lake Superior.   Agates were formed during lava eruptions that occurred in the midwest region about a billion years ago. The stone’s predominant red color comes from iron, a major industrial mineral found extensively throughout the Iron Range region.
