Moss Agate (also known as Mocha Stone) is not an Agate at all. It is a Chalcedony with inclusions of Manganese, Chrome, and/or Iron.The impurities resemble moss and other various patterns, which looks like organic matter is encased and preserved inside. Moss Agate is formed from the weathering of strong volcanic rock. The deep colour and vibrant patterns are through different levels of oxidation of the crystals.
Moss agates are mostly green or brown but can also be seen as yellow, red, and black.
