The Lake Superior agate is a type of agate stained by iron and found on the shores of Lake Superior. The Lake Superior agate differs from other agates found around the world in its rich red, orange, and yellow coloring. This color scheme is caused by the oxidation of iron. Iron leached from rocks provided the pigment that gives the gemstone its beautiful array of color. Prof James D L White is an academic staff member in the Department of Geology whose main research interests are Explosive subaqueous and subglacial eruptions, Maar-diatreme volcanism, Magma-water interaction and fragmentation, Experimental Volcanology, and Primary and secondary volcaniclastic sedimentation. Lake Magadi is a saline, alkaline lake, approximately square kilometers in size, that lies in an endorheic basin formed by a lake is an example of a "saline pan". The lake water, which is a dense sodium carbonate brine, precipitates vast quantities of the mineral trona (sodium sesquicarbonate). In places, the salt is up to 40 m thick. The lake is recharged mainly by Coordinates: 1°52′S 36°16′E / . Ivanpah Valley is flanked by high mountain ranges, and represents one of the most imposing valleys of the eastern Mojave Desert. Its sinuous shape implies a complex origin as does the fact that it is not bordered by prominent range-front normal faults like valleys of the Basin and Range Province. In Addition, its deepest sedimentary basin is restricted to a small part of the valley Author: David M. Miller, Victoria Langenheim, Kevin Denton, David A. Ponce.
