This amazing find comes from abetsibokariver basin near Vitataly, Madagascar known as the Mad River.Features amazing bands and patterns,While the stone is natural mined material and the banding and patterns are all natural, the material is dyed to create the red coloration in the Agate by soaking in an iron-nitrate mineral solution. The coloration seeps into the banded layers of Agate in different amounts depending on the purity of the crystal in that layer,resulting in the magnificent banded color layers.
