I wasn't aware that vibrations and rapid cooling basalt was the environment of agate formation. My understanding was that it was largely post solidification and in the much lower temperature regime. To bring in the chalcedony forming fluids, fracturing by shrinkage and circulating waters were needed. Am I missing something recent with the vibration concept?
