History & Origin:
Moss Agate is a variety of Chalcedony that is characterised by its translucent to opaque appearance & moss-like inclusions. These floating dendritic inclusions can be found in a variety of colours - from deep greens & blacks, to creamy whites & even rusty browns. The growth patterns are the result of Manganese, Chrome or Iron within the stone. Formed from weathered volcanic rocks, Moss Agate is most commonly found in India, as well as locations across Brazil, Uruguay & the US. It is sometimes called 'Mocha Stone' which comes from the Arabian city of Mocha in Yemen, where it was once sourced from. This stone was cherished in the 18th century by gardeners & farmers in Europe as a stone of agriculture & luck.
