Celtic is the style of decorative art and has been widely regarded as one of the most impressive one known from antiquity that developed around 500 BC in western and central Europe and found expressions in the centuries to follow over a wide area from Ireland and Spain across to eastern Germany. The development of this style owes much to the artistic genius of the local craftsmen building on the tradition of abstract and geometric art, coupled with influences resulting from traded material, especially the animal designs. This has evolved as a bold curvilinear style with a fascinating blurring of the distinction between the abstract and the naturalist with a strong sense of balance and not of symmetry. Some notable examples of this art is carved in stones and made into jewellery.
Agates are semi-precious gemstones that are a variegated form of chalcedony, which is silicon dioxide in the form of microscopic fibrous quartz crystals. Unlike other gemstones, each agate is so unique that even slabs cut from the same specimen are found to vary in design and colour. Most of the world’s agates have developed in ancient volcanic lava although they can be form in all types of host rock and today there are thousands of named agates found in nearly all countries of the world. For thousands of years people have believed that agates have metaphysical properties that not only enhance life but also cure all sorts of disorders by providing balance in your physical, emotional, spiritual and intellectual energies.
