When lava starts to flow from the volcanic eruption its temperature could reach 1300 celsius. It burns and destroys everything on its way. Some organic matters burn instantly, and some get buried, and because of the lack of oxygen that is essential for burning it just smolders away which creates a cavity in the cooling lava over a long period.
Then even a longer time, that could be millions of years, through the cavities and cracks of the aging lava, water flows through and washes out the silicon dioxide that fils or replaces the already decomposed organic remnants, and that’s how Chalcedony arouses.
Chalcedony is the collective name for agate. We recognize many kinds of agates, the stripes and pattern depend on the minerals that are also washed out with silicon dioxide from the lava.
The wonderful world of agates is truly mother nature’s art. One of the most collected specimens used for jewelry making.
