View Full Version : Rhyolite/Crazy /Lace Agate
Hi all, I bought what I thought was a piece of rhyolite but the salesperson labelled it as crazy lace agate. I didn't realise until I got home. None of my books have pictures of these two so does anyone know of a website that will help me identify them? Many thanks!
use the search, or scroll down to the titles, to see some beautiful (and large!)photos of both rhyolite (also called rainforest jasper) and crazy lace agates.
The biggest difference I can think of is the patterns of striations...the agate has bands of swirly layers, while the rhyolite has a more freeform pattern of colors...
Hope this helps! :)
Hi there Chronata! Great site, many thanks for the link. It looks like rhyolite to me, still not 100% sure though hehehe!
