How are they Mined and Made?
Mostly Agates form in volcanic areas. The waters present in those areas are rich in silica, and it flows in between the fractures of igneous rocks. A kind of silica gel gets formed on the cavities wall due to the high level of dissolved silica. The gel then slowly cools and crystalize forming microcrystalline quartz.
As time passes, the new gel layers get deposited on the outer walls, resulting in younger bands of microcrystalline quartz. However, if the water composition containing silica changes over time, there are chances that the gel can absorb the impurities. It can result in a difference in the structure of microcrystalline quartz.
If the content of impurities is high, it can change the color of the quartz formed. It results in color banding. Crystallization of foreign materials, fumes, dendritic, or mossy structures result in strings that we often see in translucent agate.
Most of the time, agates are generally formed in igneous rocks like basalt, rhyolite, and andesite. However, sometimes it can also develop in sedimentary rocks like limestone. All these types of rocks erode easier than agate. When rocks break due to weathering, the agates get left behind and this is why we find them in stream valleys under fine-grained igneous rocks or limestone.
Although, some places produce splendid specimens of Moss Agate stones, for example, Australia, Russia, India, and the USA.
