Banded Agate meaning:
The alternating bands or layers are layers of quartz and chalcedony. Most banded agate formed by water moving in and out of crack in ancient lava flow. The water contained very fine particles of silica and it would leave behind a layer of minerals that would crystalize. Over the years, as the composition of the water changed, it created differently colored layers. Banded Agate is also known as Riband Agate or Striped Agate. This is a lovely example of grayish blue striped agate.
