Wavehill Agates
Wavehill Station, Northwest Territory, Australia
    If they thought that the Agate Creek site is remote, the Wavehill Station is even more remote in Northwest Territory, making it harder to obtain the agates from there. Most agates found there are heavily fractured with peeling bands as a result of weathering, but some good specimens have been found and those are usually expensive. Most agates consist of interlaying quartz and white, gray, lavendar, pink or red agate bands. The inclusions and quartz (sometimes geodes) nodules are more resistant to weathering.
