-Junior Editor Quiz on- AGATES QUESTION: How is agate made into jewelry? ANSWER: The very common mineral quartz, often seen as crystals, can occur in a fine-grained form called chalcedony. Such a mineral may have formed inside a pocket or crevice in other rocks. When broken free, the hardened chalcedony lump may look something like (1). If, when cut across, such a lump may show beautiful banded colors, it is the form of chalcedony called agate <2). Many people have the interesting and profitable hobby of cutting and polishing agate to make rings and many other kinds of decorative objects. Our picture shows a home workshop with an agate buff hard at work. First, the man has to cut the stone into slabs with a diamond wheel to show the banded effect. Then he shapes it, finally giving it a high polish with a felt wheel. Below are some objects our agateer has turned out. Many agates are truly beautiful in the decorative banding and color contrast. And there is a remarkable luster to the surface which tempts exploration by the finger tips. Give an agate piece to someone and the chances are he or she will treasure it for many years. (Elizabeth Socha of Hamilton, Ont., wins a prize for this question.
