Beautiful Earrings handmade with Blue Agate and Necklace with Red Agate and White Jade.

 Is a microcrystalline variety of silica, chiefly chalcedony, characterised by its fineness of grain and brightness of color. Although agates may be found in various kinds of rock, they are classically associated with volcanic rocks and can be common in certain metamorphic rocks. 

The sanctuary of a Presbyterian church in Yachats, Oregon, has six windows with panes made of agates collected from the local beaches.

In Brazil; making use of a variety of proprietary chemical processes, they produced colored beads that were sold around the globe.

Is an ornamental stone. The term jade is applied to two different metamorphic rocks that are made up of different silicate minerals:
Nephrite: Consists of a microcrystalline interlocking fibrous matrix of the calcium
Jadeite: Is a sodium- and aluminium-rich pyroxene.
