The name Agate comes from the river Achetes in Sicily, where Agates were found in ancient times. Agates have been discovered with the artifacts of Neolithic people, and they were used by the early Egyptians before 3000 B.C. The stones were also utilized in jewelry in ancient India. Native Agates were the foundation of a German stonecutting and polishing industry which flourished from the fifteenth through nineteenth centuries, and which still exists today.
In metaphysical terms, Agates in general are known as stones of generally lower intensity and slower vibrational frequencies than some others, but this is not considered a defect. Rather they are regarded as stabilizing and strengthening influences which can help one to build a lasting connection or resonance with whatever energy pattern a particular variety represents. The wide variety of Agates offers one a full spectrum of choices. [Source: The Book of Stones pg. 4]
