Agate for Strength and Courage

Agate is a microcrystalline variety of quartz(silica), chiefly chalcedony, characterised by its fineness of grain and brightness of color. Although agates may be found in various kinds of rock, they are classically associated with volcanic rocks but can be common in certain metamorphic rocks.

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 (Greek: Αχάτης) sometime between the 4th and 3rd centuries BC.

Its comes in all kind of shapes, colour and pattern..each stone are unique^^..I think I own these kind of stones when I was a kid^^..
