These Banded Agate specimens are a semi-opaque white with varying shades and patterns of brown and black color and feature assorted concentrations of exposed holes and cavities that are full of tiny druzy crystals. They are cut and polished into a narrow, pointed hexagonal tower and sit upright in a black matte base that perfectly displays their unique beauty.
Banded Agate is a combination of chalcedony and quartz that crystallized in air pockets within molten lava from the outside in, resulting in its distinguishing layered pattern. Geological circumstances and mineral inclusions at the time of crystallization determine the color and formation of each crystal layer.
Natural banded agate produces a gentle calming energy that increases overall physical and spiritual health by encouraging balance, harmony, and peace while also providing strong layers of protection against the infiltration of negative energy in our everyday lives.
