Welcome to Nova Scotia Agate

We offer agate, amethyst/quartz, gemstones and fine minerals for sale, collected from the Province of Nova Scotia, Canada.

The Bay of Fundy region of Nova Scotia is an excellent location for mineral collecting (the Bay of Fundy itself is world-renowned for the highest tides in the world).  Each day vast amounts of water flow in 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 collector.

The Blomidon Penninsula is particularly rich in agate, amethyst and zeolite minerals.  Walking the coastal beaches surrounding Blomidon, one can easily fill a backpack with material.

It is not surprising that agate is Nova Scotia's Provincial gemstone!
