Agates and Jaspers are a crypto-crystalline (crystals too small to be seen even by a microscope) variety of quartz, known as chalcedony. The varieties of chalcedony are divided more by character than by color. Chalcedony is divided into a host of gemstones that have been named for locally common varieties. Some of the more beautiful types have retained their names on a world-wide basis while other names have faded into obscurity as many of the relatively small local deposits became exhausted. Some of the more common of these types are chrysoprase (a pure green agate), sard (a yellow to brown agate), sardonyx (banded sard), onyx (black and white agate), carnelian (a yellow to orange agate), flint (a colorful and microscopically fibrous jasper), jasper (a colorful opaque agate) and bloodstone (a green with red speckled jasper).
