Tumbled Laguna Agate
Agate is a microcrystalline variety of quartz composed of crystals. It is characterized by its fineness of grain and brightness of color. Agate can be found in various kinds of rock, although they are primarily associated with volcanic and metamorphic rocks.
Agate derives its name from the Achates river in modern-day Italy, where it was discovered by a Greek philosopher named Theophrastus in approximately 350BC. There is evidence, though, that agate was in commercial use as early as 3,000 years ago.
