Agate: Stone of Personal Precision
No gemstone is more creatively colored and striped by nature than the Agate. Agate is often found as a round nodule with concentric bands like the rings of a tree trunk. These beautifully stunning bands in Agate sometimes may look like eyes, fanciful scallops, mazes, leaves or even landscapes.
Ancient texts tell us that Agate was highly valued as a talisman or amulet. It was told to be able to quench ones thirst as well as protect from fevers; there are even legends that tell us that Persian magicians used Agate to divert unwanted storms.
