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 with dye.

Agates are minerals with a good ability to absorb liquids. During the dyeing process, the liquid soaks into individual layers of agate according to the level of their porosity. This package cantains both natural slice and slices coloured into various shades of blue, green, teal, red or pink.

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.
