AGATE - is a semiprecious gemstone, variety of chalcedony quartz. When chalcedony is variegated with with spots or figures or arranged in differently coloured layers, it is called agate, and if by reason of the thickness, colour and arrangement of the layers and it is suitable for being carved into cameos, it is called onyx. It comes in a wide range of colours including black, gray, brown, red, green, pink, blue, white and yellow. Agate can be flecked with colour, such as Moss Agate and is often banded, exhibiting layers of quartz crystals. There are a variety of popular agates including onyx, blue lace agate, and white agate. Historically Agate was used extensively in Egypt and Rome, in ornamental pieces and in jewellery. Considered a protection stone. It is believed to attract strength and offer protection from bad dreams, stress and draining energy.
CRAB FIRE AGATE - this stone emerged a couple years ago as "Fire Agate" and to avoid confusion with the true Fire Agate (that displays brilliant opal-like flashes of colour which are known as fire in the trade, rare and very expensive stone), it is now being referred to as Crab Fire Agate. Crab Fire Agate have glowing rusty orange colour with scattered veins of gray-white. The web-like pattern of white crackles is created via heat treatment and colour enhancement produces the fiery oranges and reds. Grounding and protecting stone with deep calming energy.
