Most agates occur as nodules in volcanic rocks or ancient lavas where they represent cavities. It is originally produced by the disengagement of volatiles in the molten mass. It was then filled, wholly or partially, by siliceous matter deposited in regular layers upon the walls.

Agate has also been known to fill veins or cracks in volcanic or altered rock underlain by granitic intrusive masses. Such agates, when cut transversely, exhibit a succession of parallel lines, often of extreme tenuity, giving a banded appearance to the section. Moreover Such stones are known as banded agate, riband agate and striped agate.

    I use agate mortar and pestle in my materials research lab, so I have experience using very expensive high quality ones. I initially thought for this low price to have one at home for precision grinding needs. I’m very impressed! It is of a really good quality.
