• Green & gold agate teardrop pendant


    This simple agate teardrop cabochon has been wrapped in a green wire mesh and hung on a green sueadette necklace.  Its simple design means that it will hang delicately on the décolletage whilst adding a touch of class to your outfit.  The cabochon is a very pale green whose colour is enhanced by the meadow green of the wire mesh.

    A little bit of history, myth & legend
    Agate is part of a family of silica minerals .  Other gemstones in this family include carnelian, chalcedony and jasper.  Agate is one of the most common minerals found in handstone carving and has been found at many ancient sites around the world.  Its name has been derived from the name of the Achetes river in Sicily where it was first found. 

    Agate is thought to promote inner stability and composure whilst its protective properties encourage courage and self confidence.  Agate is thought to be a good stone for new mothers to have to help protect them against the baby blues.  It is also thought that if an agate stone is hung between the breasts this will promote lactation.
