Tree Agate/
/How to determine if my agate is authentic?

My agate has purple rings like a tree bark. There are translucent bands in the middle.

Agate is a stone so common that nobody bothers to produce a synthetic version. You mention that the color is purple – this is not a natural color agate and indicates that the bedrock is natural agate that has been tainted by a chemical process. The reason that you can spot agate is that looks solid but is actually a mass of micro-crystals that have gaps minutes between them, which are large enough for the liquid stain to penetrate. Almost all the brightly colored agates we see today are treated this way.
