Agate is a type of quartz, and is therefore composed of silicon dioxide and classified as a tectosilicate. It is usually mostly made up of chalcedony, and there are many, many different varieties. These include blue lace agate, banded agate, moss agate, and onyx. It is very popular with the jewelry trade as well as for ornamental purposes.
