Here are the photos you asked for

If you look closely there are three distinct areas of banding the last being buried in the rock itself on the lower left hand part of the agate and the upper left hand part of the agate, it is almost as big as a half dollar. I wish I knew a lapidary.

Yes, that picture definitley shows the agate within the conglomerate rock. That's indeed fascinating and I have never seen that before. Though conglomerate such as puddingstone is formed from glacial rocks that get solidified together, so the possibility does exist, though never seen it in real life before.

This puddingstone probably weighs 200 lbs. Does it have any worth!
