These agate bookends display beautifully the alluring shades of the deep purple banding surrounding the centre chamber of stunning quartz crystals, giving these bookends a captivating charm.
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 believed to create balance between different types of energy and the spiritual and physical planes making it a fantastic crystal for busy homes, meditation spaces and workplaces.
