A Little More Info on Fire Agate

Fire agate is, at its base, a form of included clear chalcedony. The inclusions that typify fire agate are botryoidal formations inside the stone, resembling small spheres intersecting with each other.  These formations will display a play-of-color as the stone is turned in the light, creating an effect similar to but distinct from that found in precious opal.
