Rarity, Value & Variations:
Brazilian Agate is a transparent or translucent type of Agate with stripes and patterns in a variety of colors. It is formed and mined in decomposed volcanic ash and basalt from the late Permian age which was up to 275 million years ago. In the Rio Grande do Sul agate mines are fields that are plowed and the agate is collected from the ground. They are quite easy to find and the stones are very hard and take polish well. Many of the Brazilian Agate you find is dyed to be teal, pink, purple, or bright green which means that it’s not natural. Some places sell only natural agates too though.
