About Verdite and Agate
The green colors of Verdite are a result of chromium (that also gives emeralds their green color), though the stone can also have shades of yellow, blue-green and brown with spots or swirls. Inclusions of Rutile, Ruby, Sapphire, Quartz and Tourmaline have also been found in Verdite. Verdite is largely found in Zimbabwe, though the stone has also been found in other regions of South Africa.
Verdite is believed to boost reliability and honesty. Agate is a cooling stone and is believed to promote strength and healing - and to ensure a healthy life.
