01

Discover rare finds and unearth buried treasures when you visit the Souris Agate Pits.

Regarded as North America’s largest deposit of semi-precious gems, this twelve-acre glacial deposit is known for agates, but the site has also yielded epidote, jasper, petrified wood, and additional varieties of stones, unique to this area.

Travellers from all over the globe come in search of some semi-precious stones and fossils from the Paleozoic and Mesozoic eras found her.

Although the Agate Pit is privately owned, permits and tours are available at their very own rock shop on site.
