Named by the Greek naturalist Theophrastus between the 4th and 3rd centuries BC, agates have long fascinated humans. They form over long periods of time in nodules left in volcanic rock and are often used as grounding stones, bringing balance to our emotional, physical and intellectual state and promoting stability and strength. Sliced thin to reveal its translucent beauty, each piece of agate is unique. May the music of the chimes, combined with this ancient earth energy, bring harmony and balance to your life.

About the gemstone, agate, a small excerpt from The Essential Guide to Crystals, Minerals and Stones by Margaret Ann Lembo
“Chalcedonies, which comprise agates, onyx and sardonyx, and jaspers, are cryptocrystalline or microcrystalline quartz composed of microscopic quartz crystals. Agate, Jasper and Chalcedony all have chemical and physical properties that are virtually indistinguishable. A general distinction can be made that agates are banded while chalcedony is not banded; jasper is heavily colored with minerals and may contain iron and other impurities that impart the color and density of the stones.
