The History of Agate
Agate is one of my favourite gemstones as its an excellent stone for helping to heal and improve relationships. Agate was first discovered around the 3rd/4th century (BC) by Theophrastus, a Greek philosopher who named the stone after the river in which it was found, the ‘Achates,’ in Italy.
Agate is known as a stone of strength. It was used by Ancient people on the breastplates of their armour to give warriors strength and to make them victorious in battle.
