Agate, a beautiful stone and a variety of the chalcedony quartz (a group of stones made of a microcrystalline or cryptocrystalline), can be found in different colors except the green and blue ones which are very rare to come across. Today this hard rock is my latest decor fixation.
Beautiful and modern kitchen top from Cesar Stone. Their Conceto line offers different colors of agate for kitchen top, vanities, floors, walls you name it. And the best part is that they can be backlit for added effect.
I’ve seen agate in a pair of earnings, a fancy women collar or a bracelet. But now is time for this stone to evolve into the interiors. And why not add a little glamour and finesse to one or two spaces in our homes. Here are a couple of great ideas on how to incorporate this precious gemstone and some “take-your-breath-away” accessories. Let’s rock ‘n’ decor!
