Agate With Cut Base
COLORFUL + UNIQUE + DECORATIVE
Bright colored agates have won the minds of the people across the world. This ancient gemstone has been used since prehistoric ages. Its appearance is so overwhelming that people continue to use it in various forms of jewelry. The cavities of ancient volcanic rocks are where agates develop.
These pieces are approximately 3 to 5.5 inches tall and .5″ thick and available in 4 colors; blue, purple, pink and teal.
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.
For the agate collector, there’s a bewildering array of stones available. A comprehensive list is almost impossible, especially since some of the most stunning agates are only known by the name of their location.
Why we love these: Each of these gems is unique, as you will never find two agates that share the exact same looks even if taken from the same specimen.
