Red-Banded Agate Tumble Stone




Our Red Banded Agate tumbled crystal gemstones are beautifully polished with a lovely glassy quality that is semi-translucent and a mix of vivid reds and browns. Agate is a variety of chalcedony formed from layers of quartz which usually show varicolored bands. It usually occurs as rounded nodules or veins.

These stones are sold in 2.5 LB increments and measure approximately between 3/4" to 1".  We also sell these as individual stones.

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:  We adore the vivid colors and patterns in these stones!
