Caption: Brecciated agate. Agate is silica (silicon dioxide) that precipitated from liquid inside existing rock. These successive layers of precipitation are seen as the deposited silica fills hollows in the rock. A brecciated rock is one that is composed of broken fragments of minerals or rock cemented together by a fine-grained matrix.
