A semiprecious type of Chalcedony, Agate is a microcrystalline variety of Quartz. Agate is made by a series of processes that happen in cavities within solidified lava, making this piece so very special. Most Agate you'll see are historic specimens, which makes them even more intriguing.
The layers of color in this agate slice are unreal! Can't get over all of the beautiful colors!
This piece is beautiful. Even though it is not an extremely translucent piece where it makes makes me really appreciate the light for what it is that much more.
Agate is widely used for its metaphysical properties. It enhances mental function, improves concentration & analytical abilities. It soothes & calms, healing inner anger & creates a sense of security & safety.
