Agate geode gemstones appear to be nothing but ordinary rocks on the outside, but take a quick peek inside and you'll surely be amazed at the stunning growth and clusters of chalcedony quartz crystals. Geodes are rock cavities or vugs with internal crystal formations or concentric banding. Geodes vary when it comes to the volume, or amount, of crystal growth; specimens that developed with fuller formations are considered especially rare and very valuable. Agate geodes are highly sought-after by gemstone, rock and mineral collectors. In addition, geode gemstones also make for very interesting gemstone jewelry, with many jewelry designers favoring geodes for their 'raw' and 'natural' look and feel.
Agate is a variety of chalcedony that forms in concentric layers in a remarkable variety of colors and textures. The crystals vary in clarity from opaque to translucent to transparent. Agate quartz was highly valued as a talisman or amulet during ancient times, and to this day, are still one of the most popular jewelry gemstones, often seen in accessories from rings to pendants, to earrings and more. Agate geodes are often displayed as ornaments on pedestals, and many owners will place them strategically around their homes and gardens for their metaphysical and therapeutic abilities, similar to the concept of feng shui. Agate is found in many locations in the world, including Brazil, Uruguay, Australia, India, China, Madagascar, Mexico, Mongolia, Namibia and the USA.
