Fire agate is Deep fiery red and brown with internal blast or ‘fire’, the result of a layer of clear agate over a layer of hydrothermally-deposited hematite, this crystal often exhibits a brightly colored, complexly banded pattern. Balances the root chakra. Agate is formed when water that is concentrated with silica comes into contact with iron oxide, and permeates into rock crevices to form an additional layer of rock.
Fire agate is a form of quartz with a hardness of 7 on the Mohs scale. Found in the southwestern USA and Mexico. Agate is a micro-crystalline variety of silica, chiefly chalcedony, characterised by its fineness of grain and brightness of color. Although agates may be found in various kinds of rock, they are classically associated with volcanic rocks and can be common in certain metamorphic rocks.
Most agates occur as nodules in volcanic rocks or ancient lavas where they represent cavities originally produced by the disengagement of volatiles in the molten mass which were then filled, wholly or partially, by siliceous matter deposited in regular layers upon the walls. Agate has also been known to fill veins or cracks in volcanic or altered rock underlain by granitic intrusive masses. Fire agate can be hard to find.
