Product Details


  Moss Agate, Tumbled (Assorted Colors)
Information Card Included

Agate is named after the Achates River in Sicily, where agate was probably originally found.  It was first written about by Theophrastus (372-287 B.C.).  There are hundreds of varieties of agate, each with its own unique color and pattern.

Agate's chief component is silicon dioxide (SiO2), and is from the quartz family.  Silicon dioxide is deposited by silica-rich water in layers, filling cavities created by gas pockets in volcanic magma below the Earth's surface. 

Moss agate appears to have a growing plant inside.  The green pattern is actually an inclusion of hornblende called a dendrite, meaning tree-like.
