Blue Agate – Necklace

Agate is one of my favourite stones. When I first saw this blue and white slice I didn’t doubt for a moment what to do with it. The pendant which you can see here is covered with glass beads and completed with some fresh-water pearls.

Agates were given their name by Theophrastus, a Greek philosopher and naturalist, from Ἀχάτης (Achates), the river where he found them. Now called Dirillo, Sicily, the river has provided colourful agates and other gems for over 3000 years.
