4.8" Polished Moss Agate Sphere - Madagascar

 
 
This is a gorgeous, 4.8" wide sphere made from polished moss agate that was collected from Madagascar. There are beautiful pink and orange mineral formations throughout the agate, with banded agate wrapping around many of these included minerals.

Comes with the pictured display stand.

Agate is a variety of microcrystalline quartz that displays translucence and in some cases banding. Agate primarily forms when silica-rich fluids fill pockets within rock and/or fossils, resulting in deposition of the silica along the walls of the rock. This process can result in banding patterns as the composition and impurities of the fluids change over time. These banding patterns can either form as flat layers or rounded layers, depending on the surfaces available for deposition.
