Testimonials

Hi, I just happened across your site while getting ideas for my wire wrap gemstones and sea glass.

The fact that you give away information, don’t insist personal information, has bought my business already.

To add to the joy (yes, I’m prone to hyperbole but I’m absolutely enchanted with your business model), you add stone treatment information rather than burying it somewhere.

It’s very important to me to be able to tell my customers the what’s been done to their stones, the quality, source and composition of the gems they buy.

I believe I’m the only vendor to have the FCC and AGIA disclosure booklets available at any festival I’ve attended.

You have a customer now and, if OK, I will use your page on stone treatments, with proper attribution of course, as a handout at my next festival the end of this month.

Brightest blessings,

Liz

All the "Other" Agate Gemstone Beads, Pendants and Cabochons

Premium quality wholesale Agate gemstone beads, pendants and cabochons for jewelry making and designing. Carefully selected gemstones help you create outstanding necklaces, bracelets and earrings. Agate gemstones, appreciated by jewelry designers for the myriad of colors they offer, usually occur as nodules in volcanic rocks. These develop as each Agate fills the cavity of its host rock. Agate, a type of chalcedony composed of quartz layers, is striped by nature and appears in a variety of types and colors. The name of each type of Agate, such as Black Agate, is usually based on the color and/or the geographic location where the variety is mined. It is sometimes confused with jasper, another member of the chalcedony family, which has less distinct patterns than Agate. Mining for Agate occurs in a variety of geographic locations including Australia, Canada, Mexico and the U.S.A. It is a cooling stone said to help improve memory and concentration and to encourage honesty. It is purported to promote strength and increase stamina while also curing insomnia. Some wear Agate as protection against danger.
