These striking agate bookends display a fine, glassy depth of crystal and remarkable colouring. The unusual shape and deep cave centre filled with delicate crystals is enhanced by the vibrant band of intense hot pink.
Agate is usually formed in the intense heat of volcanic rock. The different bands are created by variation of cooling and mineral content when the molten rock is gradually solidifying. Finally, quartz crystals grow to create the glittering central cavity.The agate bands can be coloured in varying amounts to produce the beautiful result you see here.
Agate is known as a stone of balance and protection. It is said to balance any unequal energies in a space and improve concentration, so these Agate Bookends are perfect for a study or family living room.
