Gorgeous sliced Agate!!! Like snowflakes, no two pieces look alike! Agate is the banded form of Chalcedony, a micro-crystalline variety of Quartz. It forms in nodules, growing from the outer walls inward, creating beautiful translucent banding, many having a visible crystalline layer and/or center. Older Agates may appear opaque and less banded due to weathering and natural transformations within the minerals. Our high-quality Agate is mined directly from our Norcross-Madagascar (NMG) Agate Fields located in Ambarijeby, Madagascar, then cut and polished in our own factory. Agate has a gentle energy that is perfect for your metaphysical needs. For more information on both the physical and metaphysical properties of Agate, please read the information provided in each item's details.
