Agate is a relatively common stone that may be found around the world.  Agate is a member of the chalcedony/ quartz family of stones.  Agate comes in hundreds of different varieties and colours, including green moss agate, yellow moss agate, tree agate, carnelian agate, blue lace agate, banded agate, crazy lace agate, rosetta agate, Botswana agate, laguna agate, plume agate, green agate, plus many others, it would be impossible to name them all. 

Agates are believed to have been formed millions of years ago during volcanic eruptions.  The volcanic lava flows left cavities filled with gas.  As the flows cooled, these cavities allowed for mineral bearing solutions to enter and the combinations of these solutions along with heat, pressure and millions of years allowed the agate to form. Agate will resemble a potato on the outside, the stone must then be cut or sliced to see the beautiful colors inside. Agate is said to strengthen the body and mind and when worn will give the wearer a sense of courage.  It is also said to be a powerful healer.

Plating:

Rhodium plated jewellery is made from a base metal alloy that is coated in a thin layer of rhodium for extra strength and luster. Jewellery plated in rhodium is shinier and more durable than other metals. Rhodium plating does not scratch, dent, or corrode and retains its luster (see chain care below).

Gold plated jewellery is made from a base metal alloy that is coated in a thin layer of genuine gold for extra strength and luster. Jewellery plated in gold uses 14 karat or 18 karat gold for a beautiful, shiny luster.

This stone requires special care - exposure to water and other chemicals, such as lotions or perfumes, will damage it over time. If you polish the jewellery, avoid polishing the stone itself. A silver-cleaning dip should never be used with this piece.

Chain care: It is recommended that the chains are not submerged in water or jewellery cleaning chemicals to best protect the finish. Oils in your skin may also wear out the finish over time, so for best long-lasting results, wear the chain over your clothes instead of directly against the skin.
