Black Agate



Precioustone by Antolini

Black Agate is a type of chalcedony, which is a mineral in the quartz family. It is a popular material for use in countertops and other decorative applications due to its striking appearance and durability.

In terms of its physical properties, black agate is a dense and hard material with a Mohs hardness rating of around 7, making it a relatively scratch-resistant stone. It is also resistant to heat and chemicals, which makes it a great choice for use in kitchens and bathrooms.

When used in precious stone countertops, black agate is typically cut into large slabs and polished to create a smooth, reflective surface. The stone’s natural black and white banding patterns give it a distinctive look that can complement a wide range of interior design styles.

It’s worth noting that while black agate is a durable and long-lasting material, it still requires regular care and maintenance to keep it looking its best. This includes keeping it clean and free of spills and stains, as well as periodic sealing to protect the surface from damage and discoloration.

In ancient times it was considered a lucky charm that protected people and brightened up their surroundings. Agate – from the Greek Achates – is the old name of a Sicilian river, rich in precious stones of variegated colors. This material with an atypical opal glow relaxes the body, relieves stress, and stimulates concentration. The most select quality agates come from Brazil, China, India, Europe, and Madagascar.
