Agate – what is it?

Agate is a banded form of finely-grained, microcrystalline Quartz. The lovely color patterns and banding make this translucent gemstone very unique. Agates can have many distinctive styles and patterns, but each Agate is unique in its own habit, with no two Agates being the same. ~http://www.minerals.net/gemstone/agate_gemstone.aspx
