There are multiple levels of convolutions in this form. How did it evolve?

Most agates have the banding in patterns, though Mexican Lace Agate does have more typical curvature in the banding, caused by its formation. The banding is formed by multiple deposition layers during the formation, with each layer having a slight distinction from the previous one.
