Agate Beads - with Natural Bands or Stripes

The chemical structure of agate is the same as the one of jasper. It is formed in cracks and cavities of lava or volcanic rock. As the water seeps slowly through the rock, it takes along a variety of minerals it comes across. As the circumstances of water shift constantly, the supplied minerals change. As a consequence the so formed layers vary in color and are alternated with translucent quartz. Hence agate is often naturally banded and multi-colored.

It is the tropical zodiac's lucky stone for the month of May and the traditional birthstone of June (See http://dunebeads.com/en/june-s-birthstones-from-sweet-dreams-to-prosperity). So smile as agate offers protection. It is also said that it reduces stress and awakens hidden talents. Ergo, agate opens the door to promising possibilities.

Botswana (South Africa) is not only known for its diamonds, but also for its agate and carnelian.  Botswana agate has tight white, peachy and brown bands and is a much sought after gemstone.

The playful layered lace effect of banded crazy lace agate varies from cream to brown and black. Crazy lace agate is the stone of optimism, it promotes joy and laughter ... la fiesta of dune beads.
