Indian Red AgateIndian Red Agate Photo
  • As mentioned, this agate comes from Central Oregon. The difference with this particular agate is the story that goes with it. This stone shows a combination of brick red, white and pink tones.
  • Throughout history, because of its hardness, agate has been used as tools, weapons as well as adornments. The really unique aspect of this stone is its color. The color comes from being heated. In this case, Native American used fires inside of caves of rocks populated with agate. They would then throw cold water on the heated rock and pound of chunks of agate to later be formed into tools and arrowheads. As you walk around the area of the mine where Indian Red AgateTM is found you will find actual stones that the natives used to pound out the agate from the wall. These stones are usually round and fit perfectly in your hand and feel as if they were custom made to do this job.
