Expert jewelers recognize the pale green olivine varieties as the most gem-quality of the colors, with others being brown or mustard hued. However, crystal enthusiasts are more concerned with the strength, fortuitous circumstances, and good luck peridot may provide.
Agates are either banded, striped, or riband based on their visual appearance and their microcrystalline quartz composition. Like a fingerprint or snowflake, no two agate formations are alike.
Agates are semi-precious stones that naturally occur in a rainbow array of colors such as yellow, blue, green, red, black, and brown. Formed inside igneous rocks in fresh groundwater, the results are intricately striated geodes that rival any precious, more pricey, stone in beauty.
Carved by ancient civilizations such as the Romans, Grecians, Tibetans, Chinese, Babylonians, and Mesopotamians into sacred objects, sculptures, and beads, agate did and still does hold great cultural and spiritual significance. Modern-day uses include art, home decor, jewelry, and New Age healing.
