This isn't Amethyst and it isn't Agate. It's a chalcedony with inclusions. It's called Amethyst because it has some purple in it (but not much), but who knows where the "agate" comes from. This is also called Sage Amethyst, and apparently it is also called Black Rainbow Opal. So pick your favorite name; it's all the same stuff. A really pretty stone, unusually pale translucent milky purple with black dendrites. If you like Montana Moss Agate but think it is too expensive (and face it, it is), then this will make an excellent substitute.
