What is Agate?
Agate is composed of multiple, thin layers of Chalcedony in the form of micro-crystalline quartz (microscopic crystals) that create a characteristic banded effect in most formations. It can be found as amygdales and geodes – this means a small gas bubble formed in igneous (most commonly volcanic) rock which then filled with secondary mineral material, often calcite or, as in this case, quartz.
