Agate is a variety of chalcedony, a cryptocrystalline form of quartz. Translucency, patterns of color, or moss-like inclusions may distinguish this stone from other forms of chalcedony. Agates can show a wide variety of vivid, multiple colors. These are principally the result of traces of oxides of iron, manganese, titanium, chromium, nickel, and other elements. All agates take a wonderful polish and are tough enough for most jewelry uses.

Amethyst is the purple form of Quartz - It is found in many parts of the world, but the characteristics and quality of amethyst varies according to location. For example, amethyst from South America is often found in large sizes, while African amethyst crystals are usually quite small. However, African amethyst can be highly saturated in color, making it popular with collectors. According to Greek myth, the Amethyst was created by the god Bacchus, the God of intoxication and grapes. He was pursuing a woman named Amethyste who refused his affections and prayed to the gods to remain chaste. The Godess Diana responded and turned Amethyste into a white stone. In shame Bacchus poured a goblet of wine over the stone, dying it purple.
