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.

FIRE AGATE
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.

ABOUT THESE FIRE AGATE: These Fire Agates were cut and polished by my grandfather. THE LIFE OF A FIRE AGATE: They begin their life as regular looking rocks. Not very pretty, actually. I saw a bucketful one time. I got excited when my Grandpappy said, "here's a bucket of Fire Agate." But when I anxiously peered over the edge, I was disappointed when I saw what looked like a bunch of lumpy brown rocks in a 5 gallon bucket. Actually, I thought they were kind of "yucky" when I saw them, but I was a kid, and my expectations hadn't been met. To get a polished fire agate, first you have to slice them into thin slabs. Next you draw circles on the slab, where you think the fire is. (Sort of like cutting cookies out of a rolled out piece of dough). Then, using something sort of like a jigsaw blade, you cut out the "cookies". When the "cookies are cut out, then you fix it to the end of a stick so you can polish it on a wheel. In order to get the best fire, you have to polish it very carefully, because if you polish too deeply, even just the thickness of a sheet of paper, you can ruin the stone. The "fire" colors in some of these stones vary from yellow to orange, green, red and even purple. These stones aren't premium jewelry quality, but they will have at least a little bit of fire.
