Agate is a mineral occuring in various colours. It is formed by tiny little layers of cryptocrystalline quartz, chalcedony and opal. This structure creates marvellous banded lines, whose intensity can be boosted by dyeing.

Agates are porous and have good ability to absorb liquids. During the dyeing process, the liquid soaks into individual layers of agate according to the level of their porosity. The blue-green colour is a result of chromium oxides’ absorption and heat-treatment. The original technology of dyeing is usually replaced with cool-dye, resulting in a blue-green shade, also known as teal.

Use: Agate slices are suitable for stained-glass production; they can be embedded in metal and wood or used as a decoration on their own.
