Agate obtains its typical banded appearance through the deposition of other quartz substances within the layers. It enjoyed a high reputation as a protective stone in the ancient world. The tradition still holds strong today as Agate is widely used in spiritual healing, believed to balance and harmonise the body and mind.
Onyx has been valued for its strong lustre and colour and has been used in jewellery and ornamentation since pre-historic times. It is a type of chalcedony and is coloured black through the presence of iron and carbon.
Wearing onyx is thought to bring self-mastery, confidence and assertiveness.
