The Greek philosopher, Theophrastus, in his “On Stones” says that the name Agate comes from the river ACHATES, known today as Drillo, in Sicily. This is because the first specimen of agate was found there.
Agate is a multicolored form of chalcedony quartz formed in beautiful and unique colored layer patterns. Bands run through the stone which exhibits many different colors, shadows and patterns. Each specimen is unique just as each slice from the same specimen has its own pattern.
Agate has been in use since the Stone Age and has been found in the tombs of ancient Egyptian nobility. Scientists believe that some agates in Australia range from 2.72 to 3.50 billion years old!
It was believed that amulets made from agate protected the wearer from thunder and lightning, tempests, all malevolent elements and dangers from war. Placing one in the mouth also relieved fever. Agate mixed with certain fruit juices was thought to cure insanity.
