BANDED AGATE EARRINGS

$ 2,400

Banded agate is a truly miraculous ornamental gemstone created from alternating bands of quartz and chalcedony. Most banded agates formed by water moving in and out of cracks in ancient lava flows. Contained in the water were very fine particles of silica that would leave behind a layer of minerals that would crystalize. Over years, as the composition of the water changed, it created differently coloured layers or bands. This pair of banded agate earrings have the most exquisite placement and combination of translucence and solid banding we’ve ever had the pleasure of offering.
