Indian Agate Beaded Earrings
Agate is a banded, multicolored, variety of Chalcedony. It occurs in an infinite amount of colors and patterns, and no two Agates are alike. The extraordinary beauty and uniqueness of Agate is responsible for its great popularity. Agate must be polished to bring out its full charm. It usually forms in rounded nodules or knobs which must be sliced open to bring out the internal pattern hidden in the stone. No two beads are alike and the variety of earth-tone shades blend beautifully in beaded jewelry designs.
