Description

Blue Banded Agate is one of my most popular stone amongst my customers. I usually have many pieces in stock. There are the larger specimens that because of its size can be carried confidently in the pocket or bag , grid work but may be too big as a bra crystal.

Made from silicon dioxide, it has a glassy (vitreous) lustre, and is often used to make brooches and pins. It can also resist acids and has been used to make mortars and pestles to press and combine chemicals.

Many Agates originate in cavities of molten rock, where gas bubbles trapped in solidifying lava are replaced with alkali and silica bearing solutions. Formed as a banded round nodule (like the rings of a tree trunk) and has bands of colours of bands – Riband Agate.

The Specimen you receive will be the exact one displayed in the picture. Because of the difference between digital platforms there may be a slight difference from the colour you seeĀ  to the actual stone.
