           The stone was given its name by
           Theophrastus, a  Greek philosopher
           and naturalist, who discovered the
           stone along the shore line of the river
           Achates in Sicily, sometime between

           the 4th and 3rd centuries BC. Colorful
           agates  and  other  chalcedonies  were
           obtained over 3,000 years ago from the
           Achates River, now called Dirillo. Agate

           stone is artist’s favourite material.
