Flower agate is a formation of agate that contains plumes of white-pink, opaque chalcedony formations that are scattered throughout. Occasionally these specimens are found with white and pink banded agate, as well as milky white cross sections of quartz crystals. This type of agate comes out of Madagascar and is most often sold as a polished stone. Some of these polished stones contain pockets of botryoidal agate formations that resemble large spherical grape agates.
