Cady Mountains Moss Agate - California Stone
is a semi-precious gemstone formed from silicon dioxide. It is a form of chalcedony with embedded minerals in the stone, forming filaments and other patterns suggestive of moss. The field is a clear or milky-white quartz, and the included minerals are mainly oxides of manganese or iron. It is not a true form of agate, as it lacks agate's defining feature of concentric banding. The colors are formed due to trace amounts of metal present as an impurity, such as chrome or iron. The metals can make different colors depending on their valence (oxidation state).
Moss Agate is a stone of new beginnings. Refreshes the soul and enables you to see beauty in all you behold. Reduces sensitivity to weather and environmental pollutants. Attracts abundance in wealth and improves self-esteem.
