People used to believe that agates had magical abilities. They could cure scorpion stings and snake bites. They could still thunder and lightning. And (my personal favorite) they could promote eloquence. Magic or not, it's easy to see why agates were so highly treasured. Their deeply saturated, translucent colors -- the result of minerals that got trapped in ancient volcanic lava -- are amazing and practically indestructible. Polished to a shine, they're quite magical indeed.
