From the hot molten interior of the earth, painstakingly formed over tens of thousands of years, comes the mystery and beauty of agate.
Agates develop as hot molten lava spills from caverns deep underground. Reactions of different substances cause bubbles to form, much like in soda water. As the 2,000-degree lava emerges and hits the open air, it cools quickly. The bubbles within solidify, creating small vestibules that, over time, form beautiful layers.
These layers come from sediment-rich water that fills the vestibule. Over time, the sediments slowly solidify. Agates with high quartz content will slowly build crystals out of the mineral-rich waters filling the agate.
For 30,000 or more years, agates slowly solidify. In some cases, the environment dries out before they can fill in completely. When opened, they reveal a dazzling array of beautiful crystals. In other cases, sediment and crystal growth eliminates hollow spaces. When sliced open, you find stunning layers of deep blue, purple, or other incredible colourations wrapped around sparkling quartz.
