Notice to buyers


In 2001, I established Blue Agates with the goal of informing the public about the rarity and beauty of Ellensburg Blue Agate and to share pictures of my lifetime hunting efforts. (see a pic of the original site below) I also wanted to caution buyers about the prevalence of fake Ellensburg Blue being sold online, as MOST of what's sold is NOT Ellensburg Blue Agate. (updated July 2024)

As the saying goes, Caveat Emptor - Buyer Beware!


"I'm so disheartened to witness good folks purchasing non-Ellensburg Blue Agates, both rough and cabs, at ridiculous prices on eBay and Etsy. Certain sellers are flat-out deceitful, while others are uninformed and seem to believe anything blue can be labeled Ellensburg Blue Agate."

First site established in 2001 - this new site went live in early 2023
