Agate is a cryptocrystalline silica (a quartz) that is translucent and patterned with bands, plumes, dendrites, or inclusions. It has a Mohs hardness of 6.5-7. Most commonly found with volcanic rock, and known for its fineness of grain and vibrancy of color, agate has a rich history of use as carved stone-even being used to make mortars and pestles, marbles, and leather burnishing tools. Agates can be hollow geodes, but may fill in completely over time, or form a crystal-lined cavity with a hollow center. Agate is the state gem of Maryland.
The unique color of this piece is referred to as “Wedgewood Blue,” in honor of Englishman Josiah Wedgwood (1730-1795), son of a potter, who is known for his famous Jasperware cameos of white silhouettes on pale blue, pink, olive green, or black backgrounds.
