Distinctive agate pebble, an exceptionally tactile stone that could either be used in conjunction with crystal healing or as a colourful addition to any collection of polished rocks and minerals. Carefully chosen by one of the team at Stone Mania, this piece was purchased during one of our regular trips to South Africa.
The history of agate which is one of the oldest of all minerals can be traced back more than two thousand years. Being a relatively hard stone makes it ideal as a lapidary material and in the Ancient world as well as being used as a talisman, agate was also used for seals, containers, beads and gemstones.
Colours and markings vary from one agate stone to the next which is another reason which makes this mineral so popular. This eye-catching pebble is a unique gift from Mother Nature and we're confident you'll enjoy having it as part of your collection.
