Agate Polished Tips are a natural, lustrous rough specimen with a polished tip. They range in size between 2 to 5 inches in height. These points are ethically sourced directly from Brazil.
Agates are unique and fascinating pieces and come in many varieties. Agate is a variety of chalcedony, a cryptocrystalline form of quartz. Translucency, patterns of color, or moss-like inclusions may distinguish this stone from other forms of chalcedony.
Agates can show a wide variety of vivid, multiple colors. These are principally the result of traces of oxides of iron, manganese, titanium, chromium, nickel, and other elements. Agates are a tough gemstone with a Mohs scale of 6.5-7 and can be easily polished for jewelry making. Agates can be found in South Africa, India, Mexico, the US, Scotland, Brazil, Uruguay, Madagascar, Namibia
Agates were found by the ancient Greek philosopher Theophrastus. They were said to ward off all kinds of evil, to heal scorpion stings and snakebites, to calm raging storms, and to bring victory in times of war.
