Agate is characterized by the bright and varied colors. Agate is often found in volcanic rock formations. The stone has been known since the 4th century BC, with colorful varieties having been found in Sicily over 3,000 years ago.
We have a great selection of varying colors, sizes and shapes of agate gemstone beads and agate pendants, so be sure to browse them all. You will find everything you need to create your next agate necklace, bracelet or earring design.
SmartBeadShopping™ Tip: When cut transversely, agate exhibits sets of parallel lines. See our banded agate items below for examples of this (also called riband agate or striped agate). Learn more in our gemstone glossary.
I absolutely love these agates!!! I ordered one strand and loved them so much, I ordered 3 more. I hope you will continue to carry these, cause I'm sure I'll be back for more! I know I will add SWC with them in a necklace, bracelet, and earring set. I like the idea with rainbow moonstone and turquoise also! There beautiful!!! Thank you! ;}

These agate beads are heavy and substantial. I slipped them over my head and wore them right away even without restringing. Got lots of compliments from coworkers.

These sunny yellow agate beads are so cheerful that you have to love them, just like all the colored agates..
