Moss Agates vary in colors and patterns, but do not actually contain moss. The name reflects the inclusions which resemble moss. Most commonly known are the green moss agates containing inclusions of chlorite, but other mineral inclusions, such as iron oxides, can create other colorful moss-like patterns of filaments within the translucent to clear chalcedony. Oftentimes, these agates form from volcanic activity.

*Argentium Sterling Silver is sterling silver with less of the copper alloy. Copper is what makes sterling silver tarnish. Argentium is 92.5% pure silver with the balance a mix of germanium and copper. This makes Argentium silver harder, brighter and more highly tarnish resistant than traditional sterling silver.
