More about New Brazilian Agate

Much of the Brazilian agate we see today is found in volcanic cavities, formed when a mixture of saline water and gas bubbles exploded within cooling lava — this explains Brazilian Agate's intricate patterns and waves.

Sometimes you'll find Brazilian Agate that's been dyed with flamboyant shades. However, our natural-stone Brazilian Agate beads give you the gem's original brown tones, interlaced with white, cream and gray. Sometimes you just want a more subtle look.
