About these Stones:
History and Occurrence
Since agates are a form of silica which happens to be the most common mineral on the surface of the earth, it is not surprising that agates are found on all continents and dozens of countries all over the world. The largest and commercially viable deposits of agates however are generally restricted to India, Brazil, Madagascar, China, Russia and Australia. Gem quality stones today are commonly mined in India, the Western United States, Germany, Italy, and some countries in Africa. It is believed that agates were first identified by ancient cavemen some 15,000 years ago. The origin of the word “agate” is rooted in the Greek language. Greek mythology believes that the name came from the Achates river where agates were formed. Incidentally, the Achates is now called the Drillo River and lies in Sicily. There are others who claim that the stone derives its name from the Greek word "Agateес", which roughly translates to “happy”. Historical document also show that ancient Egyptians mined and used it prior to 3000 BC. One of the reasons for the popularity of agates with ancient Egyptians is quite interesting. Back in those days, it was believed that wearing agates would render the wearer invisible. Egyptians and Greeks were not the only ancient civilizations who placed high value on agate talismans and amulets. Sorcerers in ancient Persia believed that they could use agates to fend away large and disastrous storms. Mithridates, king of Pontus, is believed to have had a stunning collection of several thousand agate bowls. Agate bowls were also popular in the Byzantine Empire. The European royalty during the Renaissance also had a penchant for agate bowls. A few specimens have survived through the years and are housed in several European museums, including the Louvre in Paris. Agates also have a long history in Europe, although the history cannot be traced as far back as in Egypt and the Mediterranean. Among the agate mining centers in Europse, the Nahe River valley in Germany is mentioned often as one of the earliest sources of agates on the continent. There is historical documentation of agate mining here dating back to 1497. This mining center led to the formation and flourishing of the cutting and processing center of Idar-Oberstein. After German deposits were depleted, the Germans looked to develop agate prospects in Brazil. This mineral and gemstone exploration in Brazil led to spectacular finds of amethyst, citrine, tourmaline, topaz, and other gemstones in the country.

Jade is the term applied to forms of jadeite and nephrite. These minerals are similar in appearance and a distinction between the two often was not made. But, because of its more intense color and translucency, jadeite now brings higher prices and is thought to be the true jade
Thought to protect the kidneys, liver, spleen, heart, larynx, thymus, and thyroid. Ancient people thought that wearing jade would increase body strength and add longevity. Jade is an ancient symbol of love and virtue.
