Agate is a charming variety of chalcedony (general name for cryptocrystalline form of quartz). This stone is captivating for its dark banded lines. The pink patterns are caused by a pink dye, which absorbed into individual agate layers. Interestingly, in the middle ages, people dyed agates with sugar or honey solutions. Agates were used in gems engraving and intaglios – carved reliefs. The stone comes from Brazil.

Special conditions/ treatment: Do not expose dyed agate to direct sun and do not soak it in solutions. It may cause its colour to fade.
