Introduction

Agates are probably the most common gemstones on Earth. They have been used to create ornaments for around 7000 years, and have been recorded on every continent and in several different geological environments. Since the mid-1900s, agate collecting has become very popular in Europe, North America and the Middle East. There are thousands of agate-producing areas on Earth, and in the following pages, you will become acquainted with a small, but representative sample of these fascinating gems.

The formation of agates is of scientific interest to a range of scientists, from geologists investigating their geological significance to chemists studying the formation of chalcedony within water pipes in geothermal areas. This book is intended to present the current state of knowledge of these gems. Thus, the goal is to acquaint the novice and remind the advanced collector of the rich geological and cultural significance of these most beautiful stones, and to take the reader on a tour of the geographical distribution of agates across the world.
