In ancient times the beauty and durability of agate prompted man to use it in both practical
and ornamental forms. It was believed that agate had unique properties that protected the wearer from dangers and promoted strength and healing.
Agates in general come in many different forms and are formed in at least five different ways. The main conditions necessary for agate formation, are the presence of silica from denitrified volcanic ash, water from rainfall or ground sources, and manganese, iron and other mineral oxides that form the bands and inclusions.

Calcite can be found in clear, green, gray, yellow, pink, red, and blue. Calcite is calcium carbonate (CaCO3) and will dissolve in dilute hydrochloric acid. Some types are fluorescent in ultraviolet light.
Calcite is an aid to perception, allowing you to see things more clearly and to see reality in a new way. Its subtle energies help balance the spiritual and physical aspects of yourself, promoting a more harmonious way of life.
The double images produced when you look through clear calcite are a reminder that things are more than they seem. We are both physical and spiritual creatures, existing at in the material, every-day world and in the realms of energy.
Calcite is a calming stone. Its influence is said to help you look within and determine if some of the aspects of your life are in need of change. Calcite can help you make the transitions between a stagnant or negative situation and a more positive one.
Calcite has long been believed to aid memory. By helping you remember important information at critical times, it can allow you to gain more insight from your personal experiences, and often prevent you from repeating your mistakes in life.
Calcite can be used as an aid to meditation. Its soothing energies promote a peaceful mental state that will help you get more benefit from meditation. It is also used to facilitate astral projection and other forms of non-physical exploration.
Physically, calcite is said to be beneficial to the bones, joints, and the cleansing organs. It can also be used for those suffering from ligament damage, arthritis, and nervous tension. It is a good choice for athletes and anyone that puts undue stress on their bodies.
Named from the French name for lemon,"citron," many citrines have a juicy lemon color.
Citrine includes yellow to gold to orange brown shades of transparent quartz. Sunny and affordable, citrine can brighten almost any jewelry style, blending especially well with the yellow gleam of polished gold.
In ancient times, citrine was carried as a protection against snake venom and evil thoughts.
Citrine is generally more inexpensive than amethyst and is also available in a wide range of calibrated sizes and shapes, including very large sizes. Since most citrine on the market started its life as amethyst which was heated to turn its color to gold, citrine jewelry, as well as amethyst jewelry, should be kept away from prolonged exposure to strong light or heat. With this precaution, citrine jewelry will last for many generations.
Peridot is an ancient and yet currently very popular gemstone. It is so old that it can be found even in Egyptian jewellery from the early second millennium BC. The stones used in those days came from an occurrence on a little volcanic island in the Red Sea, about 70 km off the Egyptian coast, off Assuan, which was rediscovered only around 1900 and has been completely exploited since. Peridot, however, is also a very modern stone, for only a few years ago Peridot occurrences were discovered in the Cashmere region, and the stones from there show a unique beauty of colour and transparency, so that the image of the stone, which was somewhat dulled over the ages, has received an efficient polishing.
Peridot is one of the few gemstones which exist only in one colour. Finest traces of iron account for the deep green colour with a slight golden hue. Chemically Peridot is just an iron-magnesium-silicate, and the intensity of colour depends on the amount of iron contained. The colour as such can come in any variation from yellow-green and olive to brownish green. Peridot is not especially hard it only achieves about 6.5 to 7 on the Moh's scale and yet it is easy to care for and quite robust.
The most beautiful stones come from the Pakistan-Afghanistan border region. Peridot as gemstone does also exist in Myanmar, China, the USA, Africa and Australia. Stones from East Burma, today's Myanmar, show a vivid green with fine silky inclusions. Peridot from the American state of Arizona, where it is quite popular in Native Indian jewellery, often shows a yellowish to golden brown shade.
