Moss agate is what’s known as a semi-precious gemstone. It’s formed from silicon dioxide and is a form of chalcedony, which includes minerals that are green in colour embedded in the stone.
The stone gets its name from the green specks in it, all of which resemble elements of nature. These colours are formed due to trace amounts of metal present as impurities, like iron or chrome. However, moss agate is not a true agate in the sense that it doesn’t have concentric banding.
