Agate-semi-precious stone

Agate is an extraordinary stone. The beauty of this unique stone is the beauty concealed. This beauty is brought out during the process of cutting and polishing the stone, which makes it shimmer with exceptional and unique colours and sparkle with multidimensional microcrystalline layers. I would say: it is a naturally occurring mineral, the banded form of chalcedony in other words of silicon dioxide. Agate is tinged with natural pigments and with quartz. It is incredibly difficult to put into words how it is possible that one small piece of mineral has caused so much delight and has charmed so many people through centuries and has been a passion of jewellers and the object of envy of so many women.

Since the beginnings of the culture formation, agate has been considered a particularly precious stone, which has an extraordinarily magical power. Agate was used by simple folk as a remedy for treating numerous diseases and ailments as well as by artisans of decorative arts. St. Adalbert Holy Grail is the most famous example of agate application, already in the Middle Ages. The golden age of this unusual stone falls between 16th and 18th century, the Baroque period.
