Agate – May Birthstone #2


Symbolizing emotional endurance

Still a very happy birthday to you if your birthday is in May. This lovely birthstone symbolizes emotional endurance.

The Agate comes in different colours and is a member of the Quartz family and was named in 1570. The colours are usually arranged in stripes, blended in little clouds or they show moss-like forms.

It was said to be the eighth stone in the breastplate of the high priest, and it’s named after the River Achetes in Sicily. It is usually cut in ‘slices’ in order to show the lines and patterns o the inside, more effectively.

The Agate comes in colours of brown, white, red, gray, pink, black, yellow, orange, blue, purple and green. Some of the Agate stones look like they have a galaxy etched into them and are quite stunning.

May Birthstone - Agate R195 3

I hope you enjoy thee Agate necklace as I used an actual Agate stone for the pendent. In the necklace I have also used glass foil beads and seed beads in order to minimize the weight of the necklace as the Agate slice packs a bit of a punch with it’s weight. The price is R195. To place your order, please complete the form on my ‘Contact me’ page. I would love to hear from you, so please leave a comment below.

Keep your crystal on and your sparkle strong
