There are many types of agates in the world, most notably tree agate, green agate and banded agate, to name a few. White is one of the many natural colors you can find and it’s transformed into a variety of beautiful formations, including bracelets, rings, towers, coasters and much more. You will mainly find it used in jewelry pieces due to its toughness and natural resistance to many chemicals; however, it isn’t the most well known agate stone color. The white you see comes from the bands of tiny quartz crystals, which will have varying translucent banding effects, often including a milky luster.
Agate, a form of chalcedony, often includes intricate unique bands, which were formed from the slow-flowing lava that created layers over the quartz one over another. This then forms an almost perform round shape, each displaying varying colors and patterns. Almost every agate slice you find will be different than the next. White agate is 100% natural and the color is due to the varying levels of opacity and translucency.
Particularly, white agate is mined in a variety of areas, mainly the United States, including Oregon, as well as Africa, Brazil, India, and Morocco.
