Agate is a opaque, sometimes translucent, banded sub-variety of chalcedony and quartz. Its chemical structure is the same as the one of jasper. It is typically found with volcanic stone and here at dune beads it is a popular mineral.

It is the tropical zodiac's lucky stone for the month of May and the traditional birthstone of June (See http://dunebeads.com/en/the-birthstones-june-2-from-sweet-dreams-to-prosperity). So smile as agate offers protection. It is also said that it reduces stress and awakens hidden talents. Ergo agate opens the door to promising possibilities.

Moss agate is not scientifically classified as agate because it has no concentric banding, but it is a chalcedony.  The white quartz with green inclusions is reminiscent of thick moss on a forest floor.  It sometimes contains traces of reddish oxidation.

White agate has also almost no bands and is sometimes called "snow quartz" or "snow jade".  It is said to eliminate bad luck and as a consequence to attract good fortune.
