Agate is a microcrystalline variety of quartz (silica), chiefly chalcedony, characterized by its fineness of grain and brightness of color. Although agates may be found in various kinds of rock, they are classically associated with volcanic rocks but can be common in certain metamorphic rocks.
What is agate?
Agate is a translucent variety of microcrystalline quartz. It is used as a semi-precious stone when it is of desirable quality and color. Agate generally forms by the deposition of silica from groundwater in the cavities of igneous rocks.
Where do you find agates?
Agate deposits exist in Brazil, Argentina, Uruguay, Mexico, Poland, Botswana, India, Australia, and the United States (Oregon, Arizona, Montana, Wyoming, South Dakota, and Michigan). The banding habit of Agate can distinguish it from most gemstones.
Is an agate a metamorphic rock?
Agate is chalcedony formed from layers of quartz. Chalcedony is a form of Silica and it is composed of very fine uneven splintery mineral quartz. Although agates may be found in various kinds of rock, they are associated with volcanic rocks and can be common in certain metamorphic rocks.
