Description
Simple but elegant agate necklace reflecting the use of this stone in the Medieval period in in both beads and set into jewellery. Used since antiquity agates had a talismanic property during this period, they were believed to protect the wearer from harm as part of a complex system with all gemstones holding specific powers. The Old English Leechbook, a medical compendium, recommends the precious stone gagates, agate or possibly jet, as a form of protection from poisons and from one’s enemies. Of the stone which is called gagates, it is said that it has eight powers. One: is when there is thunder, it does not harm him who has the stone with him. The second power is: on whoever’s house it is, an enemy cannot be within it. The third power: no poison can harm the man who has the stone with him. The fourth power: the man who secretly has the hateful enemy on him, if he takes some amount of the shavings of the stone in water, then it will soon be evident in him which was hidden before. The fifth power: he who is afflicted by any illness, if he consumes the stone in water, he will soon be well. The sixth power: witchcraft cannot harm him who has it with him. The seventh power: he who consumes the stone in a drink will have a smoother body. The eighth power: the bite of no kind of snake can harm the man who tastes the stone in water.

I love agate and had spotted this necklace but could not really justify buying it full price as I already have a lot of necklaces. I bought it when it came in the sale. The stones are smaller than I thought but I still give it 4 stars as it is really pretty and original. I have worn it a lot since receiving it and it has become my favourite necklace.
