History: Agate derives its name from a river in Sicily, which the Greeks called Achates. Vast quantities of agate were discovered in this river as early as 300 B.C. During the reign of Julius Caesar, while engaged in the Gallic Wars, deposits of agate were discovered along the Nahe River in Germany.
Black agate is a beautiful natural stone that has long been considered to have healing properties. It's a shimmering black crystal that shines as though it's had a century of polishing. Agate stone has been used by humans since the Bronze Age.
