Eye agate was a special form of banded agate found in the Realms.[4][5]


Eye agate was similar to banded agate but with the layers within the stone arranged in concentric rings. These rings came in a variety of colors, typically gray, white, brown, grayish blue, and drab green.[4][5] A typical stone had a base value of 10 gp.[1][2][3]


Like banded agates, these ornamental stones were often ground up and used in sleeping draughts, though their effectiveness was unknown and the practice was attributed to folklore.[4][5]


Blue quartz was a common stone among the drow, a gem worn by drow of average station, albeit only by followers of Ghaunadaur and only those with blue circles.[6]
