Flower agate, sometimes referred to as Cherry Blossom or Sakura agate, is part of the agate family with cloudy-like inclusions that resemble that of a flower formation, hence the name, flower agate. This crystal is commonly found in Madagascar and is often transformed into beautiful towers, free forms, slabs, pendants, bracelets, rings, skulls, palm stones, moons, hearts, and spheres, to name a few. Like many crystals, it can also be purchased in its raw form.
Naturally, this stone is usually lighter pink in color, sometimes red, with “white flower” inclusions. These inclusions are formed by 3D plumes, which cross sections to create the white flower-like patterns. While rare, you can also find flower agate gems in shades of brown, green and/or red with white formations, creating an array of wonderful colors. Druzy crystals can be apparent, too, as well as a rare combination of pink amethyst, sometimes even carnelian. If you don’t mind a dyed flower agate, then you can find it in almost every color, including the very popular green, purple, blue, orange and/or black.
