When I saw that the topic for this oldies but goodies challenge on JAC was agate, I was really looking forward to some great pieces, and I wasn't disappointed.
Fire agate, crazy lace agate, blue lace agate, moss agate, dendritic agate, crab agate, red agate, or even Stinking Water plume agate, it was obvious there would be some fun to be had here.
The name comes from the river Achates in Sicily (now Dirillo), by the way, which was one of the places where was agate found in the olden days.
Just look at the variety in all of this jewelry!
