Natural Agate is a type of semi-precious gemstone that is formed from chalcedony, a mineral in the quartz family. It is known for its distinctive banded appearance, which can feature a range of colors and patterns depending on the specific variety. Agate is found all over the world, and different regions are known for producing different types of agate with unique characteristics.
Agate is often used in jewellery and decorative objects due to its beautiful appearance, durability, and relative affordability compared to other gemstones. These slices of natural agate are beautiful as table or desk ornament, and stunning when back lit with natural light from a window or lamp, shown in some of the images.
