How to drill holes in agate stones for jewelry

I've been looking into drill holes in my agate slices for a while. I just recently received diamon drill bits in the mail and they are the twist type. I just tried drilling, and nothing. Not even a scratch on the surface! So now, with the help of the post above I'm going to try the hole saw drill bits and hope that works. I use tape on the surface to stop the bit from slipping around which really helps but alas the bits don't even work. I need to import the drill bits from china as here the hardware store doesnt have anything smalled than 5mm. So I'm going to be waiting a while to try again...
If anyone else has any other tips, that would be great.
