|Perfect Christmas Present!|
White agate, pink sapphires and diamonds
come together in these spectacular
Agate derives its name from the river Achates in Sicily. Greek philosophy described this gem as early as 300 B.C. It was the stone of warriors in ancient times. The famous ancient Egyptian scarabs are made of agate. Agates come in many forms and colors and are among the earliest stones used for healing and bringing good luck. For todays post I will be focusing on white agate, which is very much on trend this holiday season.

As far as magical properties go, agate is the must have protection stone. It protects from stress, from bad dreams and is said to protect children from danger. It enables the wearer to distinguish between false friends and true ones. It brings prosperity and creates an appreciation of nature.

black diamonds instead.

For healing purposes, agate is used to treat dizziness, headaches, as well as skin problems. It is essential that the stone should be in contact with the skin near the organ that needs healing. This is why jewelry is so great, you can have and wear something beautiful, which is also beneficial. Tired or inflamed eyes may also be alleviated by applying a disk of agate to them. Agate has also been used for countless decades to lessen discomfort experienced during certain days of pregnancy.
One of the biggest hits of my "Wanderlust" collection were the pieces in white agate for a reason. This white gem is timeless and looks great on any skin tone. It also is super trendy and wearable, while being chic and sophisticated at the same time. Talk about a multi-tasker!
