Moss Agate is not banded, and therefore not strictly an agate in scientific terms; but is included in the agate family. It is clear to milky white with dendritic inclusions of manganese or iron that have grown into patterns similar to moss, hence its namesake. Spots of red, yellow, brown, or blue may occur in some specimens.
