Agua Nueva Agate Beads
This agate is mined in the hills of the Agua Nueva Ranch, which lies in a remote area of Chihuahua, Mexico. The predominant colors in these gemstone beads are a rich caramel brown and a deep, rusty red – the coloring reminds us of a delicious caramel apple – yum! Many of the Agua Nueva Agate beads also contain semi-transparent, milky gray-white portions in which the beautiful banding characteristic of the agate family is clearly evident.
Agate is a variety of chalcedony, which is itself a form of quartz.
Metaphysically, Agates are generally thought of as stabilizers and bring calm energies to their wearers. The protective capabilities of agate have been utilized since ancient times, often in the form of amulets and talismans.
