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!
I have to laugh when I look at this piece because it looks like a broken fried egg when it is held up to the light and it just takes me back to so many breakfast where my egg indeed did "break" so "fast"...
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.
