Agate

Agate 

Agate comes in a variety of colors from red to shades of blues. This semi-precious stone comes in just about every color with green being one of the most rare colors. It is a form of chalcedony quartz and is a common material used in hard stone carving. Agate can be found all over the world and is not generally an expensive stone.

Agate is common in Feng Shui jewelry making because of it's balancing properties also known as yin/yang energy. This beneficial stone is known to be a "good luck" stone, which adds to it's popularity.
Agate is the birthstone for September and is the accepted stone for 12th and 14th wedding anniversaries.
