This may look like snow falling on a winter's evening, but it's outstanding and rather dramatic when shimmering on silk. Elegant too.
What's more, it's never been available in stores, or on this or any other website.
It is an agate formed in voids in volcanic rocks, and in ancient Hebrew agate means "to flame", but it is also supposedly named after the river Achates in Greece where it was said to be first found.
In the Middle Ages, agate was held by people's mouths to rid them of fevers. More recently, it's been associated with stability, inner strength, and feminine intuition.
Although naturally created millions of years ago, this fragment of agate is only visible through the latest high resolution technology. A coming together of ancient and contemporary, technological and natural. Very Weston!
