Chunky light blue agate statement necklace made with natural faceted crystal agate beads dyed in a lovely light blue. The nuggets are approximately 10x17x11mm to 17x10x13mm in size and highly polished. The beautiful smooth finish is like velvet to the touch. I used little seed beads in between to highlight the agate and finished the strand with sparkling 6mm crystals in an AB finish. There is a strand of bright silver large oval link chain, and the shortest strand is blue druzy agate long ovals that are approximately 35-38mm and separated with seed beads and more blue nuggets.
The longest strand is about 22 inches, the shortest strand is about 18 inches and it is finished with a ornate Tibetan silver "S" clasp. This would be perfect for a wedding necklace or the Mother of the Bride. Pictures don't do it justice.

The agate is one of the oldest stones in recorded history. Agates attract strength. Agate is a protection from bad dreams. It also protects from stress and energy drains. Agates have been used in jewelry since Biblical Babylonian times. They were used to ward off storms and they were prized gems in antiquity. This quartz, belonging to the Chalcedony family, comes in a wide range of colors and is often variegated and banded. The agates with banded colors were placed at the head of a sleeper to give rich and varied dreams. Agate is a hard stone that comes in any colors! This type of chalcedony is formed from layers of quartz and is found all over the world. Agates are said to be amazing for grounding and balance. They also can bring you abundance, wealth, protection, love, and connection with the natural world! Probably the most famous place that agate is mined is Idar-Oberstein in Germany where it has been collected since 1548. Other locations to find agate are Uruguay, Brazil, United States, Mexico, Madagascar, Italy, Egypt, India, China, Scotland.
