Purple Agate Slice
Bring a touch of natural decor into your living space with this beautiful Purple Agate. Agate is the name given to a group of aggregates of various forms of silica, chiefly chalcedony. They form in nodules or holes in ancient lava flows. Water slowly percolates through the nodule depositing silica from the cooled lava in regular layers. Sometimes the silica contains minerals, when this happens a banding effect is visible. They are found in Morocco, Brazil, Africa and the United States. Agate is a unique mineral that was once thought to protect its owners from danger and even produce delightful dreams. Agates are grounding stones bringing emotional, physical and intellectual balance.
