Purple Moss Agate is made of Moss Agate with Purple Chalcedony

As a variety of Moss Agate, Purple Moss Agate is in turn a type of Agate, which is a member of the Chalcedony group of stones, which in turn is a member of the large Quartz family.

All types of Quartz are composed from silica (otherwise known as silicon dioxide), but differ due to their crystal structures.

Chalcedony stones are microcrystalline in structure, which means you can't see the crystals inside the stone: apart from Agate, other types of Chalcedony include Jasper and Carnelian

Moss Agate is famously adorned with leafy green patterns resembling moss growth: these are the result of green dendritic mineral inclusions of manganese and iron within the stone.
