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.

Great selection. Love the many learning features like articles and gem information. Prices competitive for natural stones. I do miss not having a selection of lab-made stones, CZ’s, etc, which are useful when price and cost are factors.
