History: Fire agate was formed during the Tertiary Period millions of years ago. They were created by volcanic activity that caused hot water mixed with colloidal silica and iron oxide to sink beneath the Earth's surface. As the mixture cooled, the silicate and iron oxide grew layers of chalcedony creating round formations. Iron oxide is also what gives Fire Agate its brown, orange and white iridescence that looks like embers of a fire.
Where it's found: Found in Mexico, Brazil, the Czech Republic, India, Iceland, Morocco and the United States.
Variations, Rarity and Value: The alternating layers in Fire Agate are created by limonite or goethite iron oxide and silica that usually comes in a round grape-like formation. It has a hardness rating of 6.5 to 7 on the Mohs scale and it’s not overly expensive. The prices of different pieces may reflect the artistry rather than the stone itself. Agates that have more of an interesting pattern or a landscape patterns are at a premium.
