What Is Agate Made Of?
Agate 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 gems are microcrystalline in structure, which means you can't see the crystals inside the stone.
Other Types Of Agate
Agate is a versatile stone which comes in many colours, forms, and patterns, including Moss Agate.
Cherry Blossom Agate is another popular form of Agate. It displays stunning pink and cream colours with a unique pattern resembling Cherry Blossom flowers: for this reason, it is also called Flower Agate.
Other forms of Agate include Blue Lace Agate and colourful Crazy Lace Agate.
