Agates and Jaspers are cryptocrystalline (microscopic crystals) varieties
of quartz which occur throughout the world. Changes in the chemical
conditions during crystallization cause the beautiful banding and colorations
which make them so appealing. Agates are a banded, translucent
variety, often named for their location or appearance, i.e. Laguna,
Lace, and Fire Agate. Dendritic and moss agates are characterized by
branching inclusions. Jaspers are a brightly colored, opaque variety with
such colorful names as Picture and Leopard Jasper. Throughout history
agates and jaspers have been worn or carried to promote good health. Its
special quality, however, is to bring success in love and friendship.
