Agate is said to be a safeguard from stress, energy drains, and bad dreams, and to attract strength. In ancient times, Agate was highly valued as a talisman or amulet to enhance the wearer's courage - improving their perception and concentration, and stimulating analytical capabilities and precision.

Agate exists in several distinct colours. In particular:

Black Agate - which owes its colour to the higher level of iron and manganese. Black Agate is thought to create balance between the physical, emotional and spiritual state of the wearer. It is said to enhance people's analytical ability and improve their perceptiveness.

Indian Green Moss Agate is called the Warrior gemstone - meaning a gift for protection and strength in new situations. It is believed to enhance the wearer's courage, improve perception and concentration, stimulate analytical capabilities and precision, and to provide protection from danger.

In general, Agate jewellery is believed to promote strength and healing, and to ensure a healthy life. It is also thought to enhance a love of nature, as well as to cleanse the soul and restore wit.

Early Greeks used Agate in the form of amulets as protection from the dangers of the sea. Then, in medieval times, Agate was worn to attract God's favour, and to make someone agreeable and persuasive. In those days, it was believed to be able to bring about victory.

Agate is associated with the birthstone month of May and the zodiac sign Gemini.

From the International Colored Gemstone Association:

No gemstone is more creatively striped by nature than agate.

Agate was highly valued as a talisman or amulet in ancient times. It was said to quench thirst and protect against fever. Persian magicians used agate to divert storms. A famous collection of two to four thousand agate bowls which was accumulated by Mithridates, king of Pontus, shows the enthusiasm with which agate was regarded. Agate bowls were also popular in the Byzantine Empire. Collecting agate bowls became common among European royalty during the Renaissance and many museums in Europe, including the Louvre, have spectacular examples.

The mining of agate in the Nahe River valley in Germany, which was already documented in 1497, gave rise to the cutting-centre of Idar-Oberstein. Originally, the river was used to power the grinding-wheels. When the Nahe agate deposit had been exhausted, in the nineteenth century, Idar-Oberstein's cutters started to develop the agate deposits of Brazil, which sparked off exploration and the discovery of Brazil's rich deposits of amethyst, citrine, tourmaline, topaz, and other gemstones.

Although the small town of Idar-Oberstein is still known for the finest agate carving in the world, it now imports a huge range of other gem materials from around the world, which are then cut and carved in Germany and Asia. Cameo master carvers and modern lapidaries flourish along with rough-stone dealers who scour the world for the latest gem discoveries for export.
