Agates naturally develop when an empty pocket inside a host rock fills in molecule-by-molecule, layer-by-layer as these microcrystals self-organize to form concentric bands or other patterns. The colors and arrangement of the microcrystals are influenced by changes in pressure, temperature, and mineral content that occur during the formations process, thus giving Agates an endless variety of colors, banding patterns and design. Unlike other gemstones, each agate is unique. Even slabs and slices cut from the same specimen will vary in color, banding and design.)
