Description: A re-strung necklace with an accent bead of Persian agate banded with gold and deep crimson garnet beads. The colours in agate beads range from bright transparent orange to opaque browns. Most agates occur as nodules in volcanic rocks or ancient lavas. Agate has also been known to fill veins or cracks in volcanic or altered rock underlain by granitic intrusive masses. Such agates, when cut transversely, exhibit a succession of parallel lines, often of extreme tenuity, giving a banded appearance to the section. Such stones are known as banded agate, riband agate and striped agate and look very appealing as in this necklace. Garnets are a group of silicate minerals that have been used since Bronze Age as gemstones. Fastening method consists of lobster type clasp (please refer to the pictures) on a metal wire. A unique piece of jewellery, suitable for modern wear.
