'Cappuccino Swirl' Brazilian Agate Bracelet

I know, I know - it's almost Christmas time, well at least according to the stores.  And I promise you that next week I'll present you my Christmas collection. But today I'd like to talk a little bit about agate.

Agate is a lovely type of crystal with a smooth sheen. It's a part of the quartz family. Agate is a very old mineral, it was first discovered by Greek philosopher Theophrastus sometime between the 4th and 3rd centuries BC.

Agate is often a bit opaque and can be found in a stunning array of shades - red, orange, yellow, green, blue, purple, brown, pink, white, grey and more.

Agate is a hard stone - usually within the range of 7-9 on the Mohs scale (the scale ranges from 1 to 10), which makes it good for jewelry.

As with many types of crystals, agate has its own special healing properties to improve the physical, mental, emotional and spiritual well-being of its users. It is often used for relaxation and balance, to ground and provide tranquility to its owner.

What I especially like about this bracelet  - it's the color. I called it Cappuccino Swirl, and it's just it - soft, sweet, warm milky cappuccino - what you need for cold winter morning before Christmas!

Thank you all for looking and I wish you warm and cappuccinny (is it even a word?) day!

The bracelet is 8,5'' long with a beautiful star clasp, and the agate beads are 10mm. It is only $52 + shipping and handling! Enjoy!
