Agate, also called banded chalcedony, is a mineral belonging to the quartz family - sharing the hardness of 7. Agates were first recorded and named in Italy from the river Achetes in Sicily. They were used by many civilizations including Neolithic people & Egyptians, as early as 3,000 BC. They have also been used in jewelry in ancient India, and Germany from 15th-19th century. Crystal healers believe that agates help stabilize energy. 

These Agate Slices have incredible clarity & quality, grade AA. From the earth in Brazil  - these have been polished on both sides. I tried to show photos of both in the sun and the shade, as the light does change their appearance dramatically! 

They are all a great size for a little charging plate for other crystals or jewelry  - and some people like to use them as coasters. Although they are a 7 on the hardness scale, be careful with other hard crystals that can scratch the surfaces.

This one weighs 8.1 oz and measures about 6 x 4.5 x .25 inches. Lovely mix of bluish gray and when in the light more orange tones! Rainbows throughout its clear center too.
