Gemstone Beads, Agate, Natural, Round, (Dyed & Heated), Frosted, Orange, Red, 6mm

These 6mm Round, Frosted Orange, Red Agate Gemstone beads feature contrasting striped patterns. Red Agate obtains its rich color from an age-old process of dyeing and heating. With a hardness of 6-1/2 to 7 on the Mohs scale, Agate is a strong stone with good scratch resistance that can withstand heavy wear.

Agate gets its name from the Achates River in present Sicily. It was where the stone was discovered by a Greek naturalist sometime between 400 and 300 B.C. In its natural form, agate especially South American agate is often grey. Like many other variations of agate, the color in red agate is most often achieved through dyeing. The art of dyeing was known to the Romans; however, dying agate has been a closely guarded secret that has been perfected in Idar-Oberstein, Germany, one of the most important centers for cutting and dyeing since the early 16th century.

Like other agates, red agate can be cleaned with warm soapy water and a soft brush. Avoid exposure to household chemicals and extreme heat. Because of the hardness and durability of agate, it should be kept away from other gemstone and jewelry to prevent scratching softer materials.
