Agate is a mineral of the Quartz group, and applies to several varieties of banded stone. The word comes from the river Achetes in Sicily, where in ancient times, people found many of these stones. Found to have been used by Egyptians before 3000 B.C., agates have also been used in jewelry in ancient India.
Glass making in the Czech Republic is a historic cottage industry. These glass beads continue to be made by hand today.
