The stone was given its name by Theophrastus, a Greek philosopher and naturalist, who discovered the stone along the shore line of the river Achates sometime between the 4th and 3rd centuries BC.
Agate is one of the most common materials used in the art of carving and has been recovered at a number of ancient sites, indicating its widespread use in the ancient world; for example, archaeological recovery at the Knossos site on Crete illustrates its role in Bronze Age Minoan culture.

Agate has a soothing, grounding and deep healing quality. I find it the perfect healing companion for stress related illness or emotional anxiety. Agates healing rays permeate the aura instilling calm and tranquility.
