Lines and unusual markings are common in specimens of these sizes. Variations in the character of the solution or in the conditions of deposition may cause a corresponding variation in the successive layers. These variations in layers result in bands of chalcedony, often alternating with layers of crystalline quartz forming banded agate. During the cutting phase, superficial stress markings may occur as shown on this slice.
