Unique Designs

Agate beads can be found in solid colors, but most have some variety of striation or pattern in them. A layered pattern of stripes is very common and is found in varieties of agate such as tiger’s eye, a brown and gold variety, or fire agate, a stone with different shades of red and orange. Dendritic agate has inclusions that resemble ferns or tree branches or bubbles. Some varieties are moss agate, bloodstone, honeycomb and plume agate. Some forms of agate can be sliced to produce a thin sheet. When a light is placed behind the sheet, it will shine through and bring the patterns in the stone into greater focus.

Drusy

Agate forms in layers and sometimes a hollow space is left inside the stone. This space is often lined with quartz crystals called drusy. These roundish balls are called geodes and are very popular for their beautiful colors and crystal patterns. Many geodes are small and can be used in jewelry. Often they are sliced to display the drusy inside the stone. Some of them are large enough to walk into, such as the Crystal Cave on the shores of Lake Erie in northern Ohio. Some agate beads contain bits of drusy.

Cameos

Cameo jewelry is often made from agate and other forms of chalcedony. The technique requires a stone with different colors, and some of one color is carved away leaving a design on a different colored background. Cameo pieces were very popular in ancient Rome and in Victorian and Edwardian England.

Many Colors and Styles

the Bead Traders carries many colors and styles of agate beads. Black agate beads are available in large pear shapes or smaller spacer beads, and come in smooth or faceted finishes. Blue agate beads can be purchased as sliced nuggets containing drusy or as faceted or smooth beads in many sizes. Agate beads come in a breathtaking array of colors, shapes and finishes, and will work for almost any jewelry or crafts project.
