AGATE

Steinkaulenberg, Ida Oberstein, Germany
 

Agate is a beautiful variety of quartz that slowly crystallised in concentric layers within gas bubbles inside volcanic lava.  This example has one polished surface and the other surface natural. It has a central core of solid, translucent, interlocking quartz crystals.

  

Ida Oberstein is a famous gemstone centre. The industry first started by cutting and polishing stones such as agate and jasper that occur in the area.
