Agate from India comes in a variety of types in Blackskin, Whiteskin or Yellowskin. The most
popular are those containing moss. Most of the moss agate, (called suabhaji), comes from the
Bud-Kotra area in Morvi in the area around Khambat (“Camaby”) in Gujarat Province, India. They
are usually found buried about 2 feet under the surface and must be dug up. When cut and
finished they take an excellent polish. The agate is normally clear or clouded with inclusions of
dark-green or red-brown moss.
