Agate is an ancient gemstone and thanks to its hardness and colorful appearance, it was one amongst the first materials familiar to mankind. In the ancient days, it was believed that wearing agates made the wearer friendly, truthful and persuasive. In short, it was considered to broaden the perspective of life.
In Persian culture, the gemstone was considered effective in preventing storms. It was believed to relieve the wearer from thirst. Various cultures across the world considered agate to be a gemstone that was protective.
Agate is associated with certain curative properties as well. It is said to be effective for insomnia, allergies, skin diseases, stress and a lot more.
Agate earns its name from the River Achates in Sicily, where it was said to be originally found. The river is now called Drillo River but it owns the credit of giving the famous gemstone its name.
