green gemstones

Green agate is fashioned from microscopic quartz crystals and is a semi-precious stone. It is discovered as a tonsil agate in eruptive rocks and is called after the Achates River, now known as the Dirillo River, in southern Sicily, Italy.

Green agate is typically found in Mexico and Botswana and has a diffusion of names relying on its physical characteristics. The hardness of inexperienced agate is a 7.Zero at the Mohs scale and has what is known as a “waxy” luster. Agate is determined in volcanic rocks and is characterized by means of a chain of concentric bands of comparable colorations. green gemstones
