-----About the stones-------

Agate:

Agate is one of the most versatile gemstones available and is characterised by its beautiful concentric layers. There are numerous types of Agate (blue lace agate, fire agate, moss agate etc.) and all technically are formed as chalcedony quartz. Probably the most famous place that agate is mined is Idar-Oberstein in Germany where it has been collected since 1548. Other locations to find agate are Uruguay, Botswana, Brazil, United States, Mexico, Madagascar, Italy, Egypt, India, China, and Scotland.

One of the earliest worked gemstones, agate was prized in antiquity and has been used throughout history as a talisman to ward off evil and protect travellers, to quench thirst and increase vitality. It is said to be the gemstone for protection and ward off stress and bring health, wealth and a long life.


Onyx:

A variety of Chalcedony, oynx is formed from alternating broad, flat bands of black and white – in this sense it is very similar to agates. If the sample is brown and white it is called Sardonyx, it is often dyed to give brilliant and eye catching colours interspersed with white bands. When it is black throughout it is called black onyx.

In ancient Greece and Rome, black onyx was extremely popular, and the name comes form from the Greek word onux, meaning fingernail. The story is that one day frisky Cupid cut the divine fingernails of Venus with an arrowhead while she was sleeping. He left the clippings scattered on the sand and the fates turned them into stone so that no part of the heavenly body would ever perish!


Amazonite:

Amazonite is a beautiful green variety of microcline feldspar. Two conflicting legends compete for origin of the name Amazonite, either named for the Amazon river (although it does occur in Brazil, it has never been found near to this great river) or after the Amazon tribe. Amazonite was used extensively by the Egyptians – who called it the stone of courage

Amazonite is the traditional birthstone for the month of December and is called the "hope stone" as it inspires confidence and hope.
