THIS FIRE AGATE WILL HAVE SOME FIRE BUT IT WON'T BE SUPER JEWELRY QUALITY. I WILL DO MY BEST TO BE SURE THERE IS AT LEAST SOME FIRE IN THERE.
Layered agate with inclusions, which cause the stone to be iridescent.
Chalcedony with iron oxide begins to grow on any available surface (the iron oxide gives the basic brown color to the gem). As the solutions began to precipitate and grow layers of silica and iron oxide would be deposited depending on the relative level of those elements in solution and underlying conditions. These alternating silica and iron oxide layers (Schiller layers) cause the brilliant fire in the gem. As iron oxide ran out in the solution colorless chalcedony continued to grow.*
FIRE AGATE minimal fire
They would make a nice starter stone for a beginning rock hound. They would also be a great addition to a crystal grid or healing layout.
