Agate stones are banded in stripes or layers and part of the Chalcedony family. It’s the most popular and most varied Chalcedony.
Some varieties of Agate have specks of color or eye markings, while some also have fossilized or solid inclusions. It displays a wide range of colors, including black, yellow, pink, red, gray, white, and brown. It forms in all mineral environments, but it’s most commonly found in igneous rocks.
Agate’s name is derived from the place where it was first found, which is in the Achates River in Sicily. It’s such a popular and in demand stone, but thankfully, it can be found all over the world!
