Red Agate Gemstones
Agate gemstones form in concentric layers which result in a remarkable variety of colors, textures and patterns. Agate was highly valued for its use in talismans or amulets during ancient times. It was believed to quench thirst and protect from fevers as a healing stone. Agate stone can be found in many locations in the world, including Brazil, Uruguay, Australia, India, China, Madagascar, Mexico, Mongolia, Namibia and the USA. Fire agate is one of the more valuable agate varieties, and due to the natural of the stone, it is almost always cut en cabochon -- in many cases, it is often just lightly polished and traded in its near-rough form. Red agate is typically dyed to produce its unicolor. Natural untreated red agate is typically traded as carnelian, since the trade name alone can often fetch higher prices per carat versus trading them as regular agate gemstones.

I have been using GemSelect for at lest five years and I have no complaints!
I love GemSelect, personally. I browse their site almost daily to see all the new stones available. Their selection is pretty amazing. The quality isn't always the highest and the cut of the stones isn't always perfect. But for the price, and if you look hard enough, you can find a real gem, so to speak.
I would recommend to a friend because of the quality of the products purchased. The gemstone quality is very high and the gems purchased are beautiful. Any friends interested in having custom jewelry made would definitely be recommended to the site. Also, every shipment is handled with care and I am very pleased with that.
