Agate – usually contains concentric bands or playful, irregular stripes, similar to cloud formations. Toughness index of 7 on the Mohs scale. Its name is derived from the Achates river (nowadays known as the Drillo river) in Sicily, where it was discovered, according to Theophrastus. The most beautiful agate stones are extracted from India, Brazil, Uruguay and Rheinland. Emmanuel Swedenborg describes the agate as being a symbol of good and spiritual love.
Coral – coral is made of the rigid bodies of the eponymous marine organisms. It is mainly composed of calcium carbonate, and has a toughness index of 4 on the Mohs Scale. Coral can be found in the shallow waters and around the island of the Mediterranean, at depths of 300 m or below. It is believed that coral can stop wounds from bleeding, and can enhance the wearer’s wisdom. Plato posited that children should scrape coral against their teeth and gums for good health. Furthermore, Plato mentions how the color of a piece of coral that is worn varies in intensity based on the wearer’s health – the healthier, the brighter the coral.
