Agate is a mineral known to people thousands of years. The stone boasts charming banded lines, which are influenced by tiny little layers of cryptocrystalline quartz, chalcedony and opal in its structure. To highlight the banding of the stone, it is often dyed. Due to its attractive design, agate is popular in jewellery and amongst collectors. This variety is from Brazil.

Stone uniqueness: This agate boasts red tones, which are often highlighted by charming black and white banded lines. The red colour of this agate is a result of artificial solution rich in iron oxides, and fire treatment. Stones with carbon in their structure will turn black-banded because of a natural carbon reaction exposed to fire. On the other hand, stones with low porosity and tiny layers of chalcedony that has not absorbed iron oxides will turn white-banded.
