What is an agate? Agate is the name given to numerous varieties of banded Chalcedony, a mineral of the Quartz family. Its name comes from the Achetes River in Sicily, where Agates were first found. Usually banded in layers, or stripes, some varieties have "eye" markings, or specks of color, some have fossilized inclusions, and others are solid. Called the earth rainbow, the concentric bands of Agate form in nearly every color the earth can produce, including a colorless form per crystalvault.com

We utilize silver wire from Parawire: "When using ParaWire’s tarnish resistant silver wire you are not just working with a silver colored wire, you are working with actual silver wire. We start with 99% pure smooth copper wire and plate it with a liberal amount of 99% pure fine silver. This silver wire is then clear coated with a protective enamel to prevent tarnishing."
