" The exquisite gemstones that we call agates, are a visual representation of the beauty of our universe arising from its inherent, awesome and endless creativity. It remains a mystery how common minerals such as quartz and iron oxides, through unexplained self-organizational processes, can create this rare occurrence in nature. The purpose of this book is to share the author's deep appreciation for agates and thereby promote the pleasure and enjoyment of their intrinsic beauty. For agate collectors who are already intrigued and inspired with the beauty and mysterious origin of agates, this book has all the latest scientific research. There is also a proposal for a new theory about the natural processes that affect the genesis of agates in sedimentary environments.
