Brazilian Agate Pendant

This teardrop shaped Brazilian agate is loaded with color--a warm carnelian red with lighter bands running diagonally across the surface of the stone (The photo looks darker than in person). I created a swirled topper of curls to show off the stone's beauty.

Treat someone special to this one-of-a-kind gift or buy it for yourself.

The stone with topper measures 2 3/4" and is 1 1/8" wide.

Note: Agate is a form of chalcedony, often banded, that comes in an amazing variety of colors. It forms by filling a cavity in a host rock. Although agate is found all over the world, the most exceptional specimens come from Southern Brazil and Northern Uruguay. Brazilian agate is mined from eroded lava beds in the Brazil plateaus. This agate displays a rainbow of colors primarily derived from iron. The colors are usually reds, browns end yellows in multi-layered bands and plumes. Intricate whorls and eye patterns also identify this gemstone. Agates have long been thought to cure everything from emotional pain to insomnia.

Enjoy this unique piece of hand-crafted jewelry.
