Where is this Agate:
Graveyard Point Plume agate comes from the Owyhee mountain area, situated on the Idaho, Oregon border. Along US 95 just south of Homedale Idaho.
The Owyhee River begins in northern Nevada and flows north. Close to the Oregon, Idaho border.
It eventually empties into the Snake River just south of Nyssa, Oregon. About 25 miles northwest of Jordan Valley, Oregon.
The river abruptly turns east for several miles, makes several loops and then turns north again. It finally flows into the Owyhee Reservoir. This is Eastern Oregon's high desert country in Malheur county.
Many types of picture jasper, plume agate, petrified wood, rhyolite, colored agates and saginites come from this area. This area is loaded with fun stuff. This area even spills over into Humboldt County, Nevada.
