COLORFUL + DECORATIVE + UNIQUE
Each agate is cut into a thin slice and displayed on an acrylic base. Agate is a common rock formation, and its primary components consist of chalcedony and quartz. Agate is primarily formed within volcanic and metamorphic rocks. The ornamental use of agate can be dated to the Indus Valley Civilization in the 3rd millennium BCE.
Each slice measures approximately 3 inches tall.
Various types of agate gemstones have been valued throughout history, all the way back to the Neolithic Era. It is believed these stones were originally used as amulets for healing. Agates were used as healing stones in Ancient Greek and Egyptian civilizations as well.
Agates have a deep connection to the Earth and home and come in a dazzling array of varieties, and they’re found in the collection of most rockhounds. They’re beautiful, readily found, and extremely durable.
