Samyta Agate

Magnificent Samyta agates are a rare form of agate found in the 1990’s
near the Condor agates in the Patagonia region of Argentina. When in
the rough uncut form it is very difficult to tell a Condor from a Samyta
agate. Once cut open, these wonderful agates display a showy white
crystallization in a translucent agate background with White, Caramel
Brown, Red, Green, Yellow and Gray showing a beautiful design shape.
This particular Agate variety appears only in Argentina, Patagonia. They
have a wide range of colors and designs in banded and layered agate.
Many collectors call this a variety of Condor Agate, we prefer Samyta on
it's own.

Agate is a striped chalcedony quartz that forms in concentric layers in a
wide variety of colors and textures. An individual agate forms by filling a
cavity in a "host" rock. As a result, agate often is found as a round
nodule, with concentric bands. In ancient times it was said to quench
thirst and guard against fever, and agate bowls were very popular in
historical Europe. This particular Agate variety appears only in
Argentina.

These Samyta Agates are from the “La Belen” mine near Buta Ranquil,
Neuquen and Mendoza at the edge of the Andes mountains on the
western side of Patagonia.
