About this Gemstone
Cameos are created by layering different colored agates over each other and then carving into it to reveal a relief. This cameo is created with a layer of white agate over red agate.
Red agate is a type of chalcedony which is a cryptocrystalline quartz. It is said that the Vikings used red agate to find lost objects or hidden treasure. Close it in your hands until it feels warm to know where and how to find what you need. It is said to restore good health, employment and lasting love.
Rubies are a member of the corundum family and have been used as symbols of protection throughout time. They are very hard gemstones measuring 9 on the Mohs scale of hardness and an excellent gemstone for use in jewelry. Their color ranges from pinkish red to deep purplish red. Rubies can be found in Burma, Cambodia, Thailand, and Mozambique.
Rubies are the birthstone for the month of July and the gemstone for the 15th and 40th wedding anniversary.
