Size: Large Teardrop. What we find so fascinating about true brecciated agate is the chemistry involved in their unique mixture. Imagine small pieces of fine chalcedony and agate crushed by the violence of an earthquake and then melted and pressed together by a volcanic goo. That is something like the process that creates many fine stones all pressed into one fine enough to be fashioned into semi-precious jewelry. While very earthy and brown in tone from a distance, upon closer inspection you find a perfect symphony of little agates of all kinds inside. The spiritual and healing properties of these stones are interesting, in that they have the power to bring chaos into perfect form—or transform anxiety into peace and comfort.
