Agate is a common rock formation, consisting of chalcedony and quartz as its primary components, consisting of a wide variety of colors. Agates are primarily formed within volcanic and metamorphic rocks.
Moss agate includes minerals of a green color embedded in the stone, forming filaments and other patterns that look like moss. It shows a clear or milky-white quartz with the included minerals that are mainly oxides of manganese or iron. Technically, it is not a true form of agate, because it does not have concentric banding.
Moss agate is found in countries across the world, including India, Brazil, Uruguay, central European countries, and the United States. It can be found in the western U.S, including Montana.
This is a natural stone that has had no treatment other than cutting and polishing.
