Terra Agate Beads
Terra Agate gemstone beads are enchanting mixes of cheerful color and natural brown and white banding. This agate variety is super popular and we can see why!
Terra Agate beads are produced using a process similar to Tibetan (Dzi) Agate. A combination of methods including sanding, laser etching, and color enhancement create amazing permanent patterning. Because they're made from true agate, many pieces have some translucency, adding wonderful depth to already striking colors and patterns. Agate is a variety of chalcedony, which is itself a form of quartz. 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.
Metaphysically, Agates are generally thought of as stabilizers and bring calm energies to their wearers.
