Agate Bookend Pair




Sliced from semiprecious agate gemstone, these bookends are a dramatic way to anchor books on a shelf or table. The druzy stones are formed in ancient lava streams in the mountains of Brazil and combine agate, druzy, and crystal in layers of luminous color. True Nature Artisans polish each one by hand, leaving the stony edge on the back untouched.

These Agates are slices of magic to me. Each one so unique, full of concentric circles, variegated bands, and deep pools of color that are so characteristic of agate stones. Since ancient times, agate has been used as a protective talisman that brings a gentle sweep of energy and balance to its surrounding environment. Gentler than quartz, and more protective than jasper, these Agates will set the space of sanctuary with a unique presence all of its own.

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.

Agate is a sought-after and unique 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.
