Smooth, round shape Natural Red Agate stretch bracelet. 10mm, standard size.
Often confused with Red Jasper, Red Agate is a unique stone in its own right. At face value, it does look strikingly similar to the fiery Jasper variety. It takes on the same deep red hues and sporadic inclusions.
However, the key difference with Red Agate is its translucent finish. Light can enter the stone, creating some beautiful reflections and shadows.
Despite its similarities with other stones, Red Agate has a compelling meaning and is revered all the same. It was first discovered around the banks of the Achates River in Italy, which is how it got its unique name. However, Agate is not limited to one geographical location. It’s mined in countries around the world!
Throughout history, Red Agate was known as the Warriors Stone. No matter which side they were on, soldiers would wear this stone to stay safe from injury amid battle.
Many crystal practitioners believe that the stone’s protective qualities persist today. Some believers seek the stone out as a totem that connects to guardian angels above and Mother Earth below. You might see people putting a stone in their car, carrying one in their bag, or keeping a rock in their pocket!
