About this Stone:
Moss Agate is a chalcedony (pronounced kal-sed-on-ee) that is formed in the sedimentary process whereby viscous silicic acid has been penetrated with iron silicate solutions without becoming mixed. This creates streaked moss green inclusions.
This multi shaded green variety of agate looks similar to moss when viewed from a distance. Moss agate is sometimes found with bands of brown agate, and this particular variety is known as "mocha stone".
