Agate Gemstone (POLISHED SLICE)
INTOXICATING COLORFUL AGATE
A polished agate slab cut.
What is Agate?
Agate is a translucent variety of micro-crystalline quartz.
It is used as a semi-precious stone when it is of desirable quality and color.
Agate generally forms by the deposition of silica from ground water in the cavities of igneous rocks.
The agate deposits in concentric layers around the walls of the cavity or in horizontal layers
building up from the bottom of the cavity. These structures produce the banded patterns that
are characteristic of many agates.
Agate occurs in a wide range of colors which include: brown, white, red, gray, pink, black and yellow.
The colors are caused by impurities and occur as alternating bands within the agate.
The different colors were produced as ground waters of different compositions seeped into the cavity.
The banding within a cavity is a record of water chemistry change. This banding gives many agates the
interesting colors and patterns that make it a popular gemstone.
