Fire agate is a brown agate which has a botryoidal or grape-like growth form within it. What is special about fire agate is that it contains thin layers of plate-like crystals of iron oxide in different planes which bends the light rays while traveling through it. This creates beautiful iridescent colors of red, gold, green and blue-violet from which fire agate gets its name.
The Egyptians used agate as a gemstone more than 3,000 years ago. But one of the rarest forms of agate -- fire agate -- has been available commercially only in the last 60 years. Fire agate is found in only a few locations in the world, mainly in the southwestern USA and Mexico.
