A Christmas treasure...

My family and I went for a hike along the Sandy River to get some fresh air on Christmas. I have been so cooped up lately that I couldn't handle it anymore. It was sunny and beautiful on Christmas Day but by the time we got to the river in the very late afternoon the sun was no longer hitting our side of the river. Nalah was leading our hike through the woods full charge and the other older kids were hesitant at first but had a fun time building forts and throwing rocks into the river. The kids stayed behind with their Papa and Uncle, and I walked  up ahead to check out the rocks along the shore. I  noticed my footprints were the only ones along on the beach that day and lucky for me there was a giant red agate just sitting there on the beach. My Christmas treasure!

So lovely! This may be a dumb question, but how can you tell it's an agate? My hubby and I were wondering at this coast this past weekend. :)
