Agate mineral

A semi-precious hard mineral occurring throughout the world, agate varies in colour and transparency. Although agates may be found in various kinds of rock, they are classically associated with volcanic formations.

Agate is one of the most common materials used in the art of hardstone carving, and has been recovered at a number of ancient sites, indicating its widespread use in the ancient world. Agate is still used today for carvings, paper knives, and to make ornaments such as pins, brooches, beads and other types of jewellery.
