Traditionally Agate is worn for protection. In the Middle Ages it was worn as an amulet, a small piece of jewellery believed to protect against danger and disease.
Agate occurs as masses in rocks and when split open reveals amazing variety of colours and patterns as well as distinct banding. It gets polished for use in pendants or brooches. It was used extensively in Egypt and Rome in ornamental pieces and jewellery.
