Cylinder seals, decorative rings and filigree cameos have been made from high-quality agate since ancient times. The agate inspires with its many colors and its striking striped patterns, which make it a special eye-catcher. They range from red blood agate to yellow honey agate to white peace agate. The appealing varieties of quartz bear the name agate because of their first described locality, the river Achates in Sicily, where they occur in large quantities. In popular belief, the agates are used to bring ideas and thoughts from the deep regions of the subconscious to the surface and to balance the energies.
