So, what is moss agate? Moss agate - also referred to as tree agate - is a semiprecious stone from the quartz family that is known for its undeniable nature-like beauty and symbolism. The name comes from the beautiful green inclusions in these stones, which look like moss you’d find in a forest. The stones themselves range from milky white to translucent, giving a foggy appearance, which makes the green moss-like inclusions pop. The shades of green, size, and amount of inclusions vary, making each stone unique.
A moss agate engagement ring is a great choice for nature-loving couples, or for the couple looking for a unique, one-of-a-kind engagement ring. Moss agate stones are beautiful in any ring setting and metal color, and the variety of these stones means they’re striking in any cut you desire.
A moss agate ring is also an affordable yet sophisticated option compared to traditional diamond engagement rings. Moss agate is a fairly hard gemstone - it’s rated as a 7 on the Mohs Scale.
