A semiprecious type of Chalcedony, Agate is a microcrystalline variety of Quartz. It is made by a series of processes that happen in cavities within solidified lava. Most Agate you’ll see is banded & can be any color in the spectrum.
This piece's shape resembles the shape of a leaf to me while remaining completely translucent apart from the outline. It is gorgeous.
Agate is widely used for its metaphysical properties. It enhances mental function, improves concentration and analytical abilities. It soothes & calms, healing inner anger & creates a sense of security & safety.
