More about Colorful Agate

Satisfy your desire for the whole rainbow with agate beads! When natural agate is dyed or heat-treated, the swirling or banding patterns in the stone are enhanced and vivid in coloration. The name Agate is associated with the Achates River of Sicily, now known as the Dirillo River. Agate was utilized by ancient Greeks and Romans for decorative carving and arts, and examples from that time are still extant.

The colorful agate beads you see here have been dyed or heat-treated to achieve their bold coloring. Agate is a variety of chalcedony, which is itself a form of quartz. Agate displays distinct banded patterns, and responds well to various dye treatments. There are a multitude of agate varieties specific to locations all over the world.

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.
