BANDED AGATE (KERROUCHEN) FOR SALE
Banded agate nodules from Kerrouchen (also spelled Karouchen or Kerrouchene) are known for their intense red, pink, white, yellow, orange and brown agate hues. They formed as nodules from silica and iron-rich fluids, within the Triassic age basaltic rock. These nodules can reach upwards of 12 inches wide and can be collected from the basalt itself, or more commonly from the apple farms in the valleys where farming exposes these nodules that eroded out of the basalt. Both nodular and vein/seam agates come from this region of the Atlas Mountains.
