Welcome to Nova Scotia Agate
We offer agate, jasper and amethyst for sale, collected from the Bay of Fundy region of Nova Scotia
, Canada. We specialize in the unique Nova Scotia Flame Agates such as the Golden Flame, Red Flame and Cherry Flame agates.
The Bay of Fundy region of Nova Scotia is an excellent location for mineral collecting (the Bay itself is world-renowned for the highest tides in the world). Each day vast amounts of water flow into (and out of) the upper Minas Channel area. This daily ebb and flow of the tide carves rock from the surrounding basalt cliffs, which exposes new agate seams and mineral pockets to the avid rockhound.
The Blomidon Penninsula is particularly rich in agate, amethyst and zeolites. Walking the coastal beaches surrounding Blomidon, one can easily fill a backpack with agate. It is not surprising that agate is Nova Scotia's Provincial gemstone.
The agate, jasper and amethyst found throughout this website have all been collected along the Bay of Fundy region of Nova Scotia. Popular collecting localities include Lobster Hole Cove, Cape Split, Big Eddy, Amethyst Cove and Wilma's Beach. For those interested, many of our mineral collecting adventures are posted on the Nova Scotia Agate Facebook page
