What Is Amethyst Agate Made Of?
Amethyst Agate is primarily comprised of Amethyst Quartz and Agate.
Agate is a member of the Chalcedony group of stones, which 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: one form of Quartz is Amethyst, which is included in this particular form of Agate.
What Does Chalcedony Mean?
Chalcedony gems such as Agate are microcrystalline in structure, which means you can't see the crystals inside the stone.
Amethyst Quartz, however, can be observed in crystal form as it is not a form of Chalcedony.
Agate is generally distinguished from other types of Chalcedony due to its banded patterns and translucency: for example, Jaspers tend to be opaque and you cannot see through them if you shine a light through them.
Other types of Chalcedony gemstones include Jasper, Carnelian, and Chrysoprase.
What Is Lavender Amethyst?
Lavender Amethyst is a term used to describe the paler, lilac variety of Amethyst, which tends to come in deep violet varieties.
Other Types Of Agate
Agate comprises a diverse group of stones which can come in many colours and patterns.
Examples include Moss Agate, which demonstrates moss-like patterns, and Cherry Blossom Agate, which displays patterns that look like the flowers of the Cherry Blossom tree.
Eye Agate is a prized form of Agate which displays concentric circles resembling eyes.
Where Does Agate Come From?
Agate in its various forms can be found all over the globe.
This particular piece was sourced from India.
Agate was first recorded as being discovered in Sicily, near the River Achates, from which it gained its name.
It has been found in many archaeological sites, including in Greece where Agate carvings date back to the Bronze Age.
