The principal composition of agate is silicon with minor element constituents each typically less than 0.02% of magnesium, aluminum, sodium, calcium, iron and potassium. Collectively, this permits a diversified number of sample substances of differing hardness to be safely and effectively comminuted with a minimal amount of contamination to the sample.
Note: Agate is an extremely hard substance prone to fracture in handling or when subject to impact and/or extremities in temperature. Extra care should be exercised in the judicious use and applications of these products. They are not guaranteed against fracture or breakage. The buyer assumes full responsibility in the purchase and use of these products regardless of their suggested use. Chemplex® Industries, Inc. assumes no responsibility whatsoever.
