Agate History

The history of the Agate crystal is closely tied to Germany. The town of Idar-Oberstein has an important connection to this type of crystal. Reason being is that both Agate and Jasper were found in this town and mined, cut and polished by a local craftsman. There was a huge Agate deposit found in Rio Grande do Sul, Brazil in the 1800's. The Agate was then shipped back to Idar-Oberstein for cutting and polishing as the locals from this town knew how to handle this crystal.
